For more than 50 years Ventures have been giving young people the opportunity to look into who Jesus is, and many have chosen to join the millions of Christians all over the world who follow him today.

Types of holidays

Classic Venture

The original Venture holiday of fers a little bit of something for everybody: loads of games, activities and crafts, usually including a day trip in the area too.

Activity Venture

Each day is spent enjoying the challenge of different outdoor activities such as climbing, raft building, mountain biking and kayaking.

Creative Venture

Holidays with a specific theme explained in the description of the Venture.

Falcon holidays

We also run Falcon holidays for children and young people who face disadvantage in their daily lives. These holidays are heavily subsidised by supporters to make sure finance is not a barrier for anybody who wants to attend.

All Ventures cater for young people in specific age groups (as below).
