XPLoRE Camps at Whithaugh Park

XPLoRE camps are specifically designed for 11-16 year olds. The camps are action packed, Jesus centered and full of fun. You will spend time with your friends in your lodge, eat in big marquees and take part in outdoor activities including rock climbing, zip wire and raft building.

Each morning you will learn a little bit more about Jesus and each evening you will get to celebrate and explore who Jesus is with meetings, worship, question times, and discussion groups.

The week is jam-packed and bursting with adventure! Are you going to join us?

Whithaugh Park is set in the beautiful Scottish Borders, 25 miles north of Carlisle.  To find out more about Whithaugh Park and its facilities, click here.
