We are really excited to announce our brand new retreat weekend for young people called ROOTED. As you may know, we have run two annual retreats, jDAMASCUS weekend and DAMASCUS summer camp for over a decade. We have seen hundreds of young people’s lives enriched by these events. Our new initiative ROOTED is similar to DAMASCUS but this time it’s one event.
One weekend away, two streams for ages 10-13 and 14-18. It’s taking place on Friday 5th-Sunday 7th July at Oakwood Youth Challenge, Wokingham. The cost for the weekend is £85 which includes ensuite accommodation, two supervised outdoor activities such as archery or high ropes, talks, live music, creative workshops, fun games, and activities, yummy meals, workshops, worship, a bonfire and so much more. Spaces are limited so please book your child’s place as soon as you can.
ROOTED is one of the youth initiatives from the Catholic Parish of Guildford, supported by the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. ROOTED is one of the youth initiatives from the Catholic Churches of Guildford, supported by the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton.
