Spiritual Gifts and Practical Gifts - Phoenix Summer Camps
In the second week of Advent, we hear from two of the staff from schools who bring children to our Phoenix Summer Camps, about the benefits the see for their students and schools. The camps give an active, faith-based holiday to young people who need a break they may not otherwise get. Each year, several secondary schools bring ten Year 7 students each, along with two members of staff, to Base Camp at Savio House, our Youth Retreat Centre in Bollington. They have lots of fun indoors and out, make new friends, learn more about cooperation, support each other and share prayer together - all in true in Salesian style. The camps are planned and led by the Salesian Youth Ministry team with support from additional volunteers, and each week-long camp offers a wide range of activities, including trips out to Stockport swimming pool and Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
