Coronavirus update

Due to the current situation regarding Covid-19, we have sadly had to cancel the camp for May this year. Anyone who has booked will receive a full refund.




WHAT is Bedfordshire Camp? 

Bedfordshire Camp is an action packed 3 days under canvas at the fantastic Jordans Close campsite in the Ouse Valley. The active and varied programme includes great fun games and activities, interest groups, singing, quizzes and Bible teaching. 

Although it’s under canvas, don’t worry, there’s an indoor dinning room, washing facilities and our very own tuck shop!

Bedfordshire Camp is a new camp run by Young Life (NYLC) working alongside local churches. Young Life is a national Christian charity working with young people, run by leaders who believe the Bible and love Jesus. Young Life runs a number of holidays for young people across the UK and Ireland. They are a great time for young people to explore the Christian faith and find out what the Bible says for themselves.
