Camp in a Box

Introducing Camp in a Box

A brand new resource, designed to give those missing out on Family Camps all the fun of camp, from the comfort of their home.

What is Camp in a Box? 

Sadly Family Camps can't run this year, but the fantastic Llanddwywe team have created this brilliant resource to brighten up everyone's days. 

Camp in a Box is designed to bring the wonderful experiences of Family Camp direct to the doorsteps of those who'd normally holiday with them. The Llanddwywe team are generously making this resource available to everyone so that youth groups, church groups and others can all benefit from it at this challenging time.  It can be used with any number of families and the online resources are totally free. It costs around £30 to put one family box together, but the included activities can be adjusted to fit your budget.

The theme of the 3 day ‘camp’ is growing in faith. This is divided into three daily themes:

  • Day 1: Planting,
  • Day 2: Growing/nurturing
  • Day 3: Bearing fruit

The material is designed specifically for use with families who have children under 12 and consists of material to be delivered in 3 different ways:

  1. Online video material - including an introduction to the daily theme,  activities for the whole family & teaching/worship time. 
  2. A goodie box with treats and materials to support activities - hand-delivered by the local leaders organising the 'camp'.
  3.  Zoom 'pick n mix' style material, designed to help local leaders host an online gathering each day for their families.

Camp in a Box is designed to be as flexible as possible, to work well in all locations.
