VINEY HILL CAMPING AND SOCIAL WEEKEND
21st – 23rd June 2019
St Marys’ have booked the Viney Hill Christian Outward Bound Centre in the Forest of Dean, near Lyndey for another summer weekend.
Get to know those at St Mary’s in this relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of time to chat, share a meal and join in activities if you choose.
We hold compline before bed and a service before lunch on Sunday.
The surroundings are ideal for a walk or bike ride and we enjoy an evening talent show and bonfire chat (weather permitting).
Saturday’s organised activities can include:
Archery, low ropes and crate stacking. We have reserved the lake again this year so raft building or canoeing is on the cards! All led by a qualified instructor (additional cost apx. from £6.25 to £14.50 each).
We also have free activities for the young ones.
No need to pitch a tent (they are pre-erected) or
stay in one of the Cabins.
Food is included in the price with inside facilities for preparing and serving meals and a lounge for relaxing.
Cost subject to confirmation: Weekend: adults/8+yrs £47 pp; school age to 8yrs £35 pp; 1-4yrs (not at school) £20 pp; under 1 free.
