For years we held a children’s camp in Fleet, near Weymouth. In 2010 the site at Fleet become no longer available so we approached Lox Lane for permission to hold our summer Camp on the field next to the road. Since then we have held camps every year at Lox Lane. It has been our privilege to welcome hundreds of children, and young adults serving as leaders, to an amazing week of fresh air, crazy fun, awesome food and the presence of God.
We cater for children aged 8 – 13. They have come from an area stretching from Weymouth to London and Birmingham to Bournemouth.
We love Camp as it is a break from the high-tech, screen-based lifestyle for us and the campers. We go to sleep in tents, as the stars come out, we wake up to the sound of the dawn chorus. favourite activities include river rafting, wide games, campfire cooking, day trips and crafts alongside energetic worship and discovering the amazing love of God. Friendships are made with people we have never met before. Lives are influenced as young people embrace new challenges, and learn new skills.
All of our leaders are chosen because they share the same passion for Jesus as we do. They are each checked through the DBS process and we take up references about their suitability to work with children. Camp is addictive: many leaders were once at camp as campers themselves. Many children and leaders come back year after year, as once is never enough!
