Wow, what a weekend!

This article is taken from the Summer 2015 issue of The Boys’ Brigade Gazette.

From 29th to 31st May, 250 young people and leaders met together at Felden Lodge for the first ever Unite camp. The event was advertised as a ‘camp with a difference’ and it really did live up to the expectation. It was a unique opportunity for young people and leaders from across the England Region to meet, explore their faith and enjoy a range of activities together.

Like on any camp, there were early mornings and late nights. From Bush tucker trials, inflatables, archery, wide games, quizzes, water games, mocktail masterclass, human hungry hippos and films, there was plenty to do for everyone. Leaders enjoyed some excellent workshops on Company development, music ideas for the non-musical, ideas for working with under and over 11s and even an afternoon tea!

Campers were grouped into ‘villages’ based on the Unite logo; red, blue and yellow. Over the weekend the villages competed against each other in a range of activities to win the sought after ‘Best village’ trophy. Red village took the title led by their village leaders Adam Morris (21st Cardiff) and Rachael Knowles (53rd/59th Manchester).

Worship was led by James Oxford and his band who introduced us to some new songs, as well as bringing out some old classics. Mark Greenwood talked on the theme of uniting together with God, also including his thoughts on curries and Bradford City F.C! Jacob and Lucy did a fantastic job of leading the campfire with an acoustic sing along and speaking to the 15-18 year old group about their journeys of faith. The pastoral team hosted lots of crafts, art work, teaching and even created a ‘Unite’ song!
