Children on Summer Holiday Camp

Holidays & events

Looking for your kids to have a great holiday and find out more about faith? Our camps have everything you need!

Holidays and missions update

Although we will not be running our normal full programme of residential summer holidays in 2021, we still have lots happening. We have a number of family holidays at Great Wood, including a brand new holiday for families with children who are fostered or adopted. Some of our holidays are running non-residential day camps, and others are going online - you can book for these holidays now. 

Most of our missions and holiday clubs will be happening as normal in a Covid-secure way, and we will publish more details of these shortly.

About SU holidays & events

Scripture Union camps and holidays are a great experience! We have a huge range of fun on offer, from camping in tents to sleeping in log cabins, and from outdoor activity centres to luxury boarding schools.

Choose from multi-activity residentials with a mix of sport, adventure, arts and crafts, fun and games, or go for one of our specialist holidays which focus on a specific activity. examples include: horse riding, sailing, motor sport, performing arts and baking. 

Looking for something local? We have holiday clubs and other activities on parks, beaches and in community centres around England and Wales.

We have been organising holidays and activities for children, young people and families for more than 100 years. Each of our events is unique, but they all share the core values of fun, friendship and faith exploration.

All our holidays and other events are run by high-quality volunteer teams (suitably vetted and trained).

We aim to make our holidays as affordable as possible. We do not run them to make a profit. We have five-day camps from as little as £85! That includes accommodation, food and activities, and grants are available to those who need help.
Join us on the beach, in a park or at your local holiday club! We have day camps for kids of all ages, we offer a unique blend of fun and finding out about faith. From tide fights to craft activities there is something for everyone.
There are opportunities for people of all ages to join the team on one of our holidays, camps and clubs. We have roles to fill ranging from cooks to cabin leaders and from sailors to singers. So whatever your skills we have a place waiting just for you. Never done it before? With great training, now's your chance to give it a try!
