A camping and activity weekend for children and young people aged 8 – 15 years!
Spree West Midlands is moving!
After three successful years at Lenchwood Christian Centre, Spree West Midlands is moving to Blackwell Adventure in Bromsgrove. This site provides us with a larger camping capacity and the ability to provide a wider range of fun and adventurous activities. This, in addition to our option of three creative, evangelistic and deeper teaching sessions, is why SPREE WM offers a full and exciting experience for children and young people wherever they are in their faith journey.
Spree is a high-octane camping and activity weekend for children and young people aged 8-17 years, and it is specifically designed for Groups from all backgrounds.
We believe Spree WM is a fantastic event. However, we would love to share some thoughts from our leaders too!
"All young people enjoyed their experience and have a much better opinion of Christianity. The event promote several faith discussions and opportunities to share God reality and impact on our lives."
"Our young people spoke of encountering God in a powerful way."
Special note (WARNING) for leaders:
We must admit this is an activity weekend. There is a chance you will be challenged by your young people to participate in something that is borderline scary. We cannot lie, your group may even heckle you until you finally give in and attempt the leap of faith, take on a laser tag battle, or drop some miraculous break-dancing moves.
We also have to confess that, in addition to the diverse range of activities, there is a first-class, evangelistic spiritual programme. There is a high probability that your young people may come to you with challenging questions about the wonders of Christ when you,
a) have just sat down with a fresh coffee,
b) are about tuck into a giant burger, or
c) are desperate for a shower after getting particularly sweaty
showing your group you CAN actually body-pop.
The SPREE WM team can take no responsibility for these things. However, there is a fantastic pastoral team available on-site if you require prayer, encouragement or a biscuit.
There is also a First Aid room should you injure yourself doing the robot.
