Introducing Woolhampton 2 2014

Welcome to the Woolhampton 2 (or Woolie 2 as we like to call it!) website.

If you've booked your place on Woolie 2 2014 you should have received this invitation in the post, along with details of times, directions, what to bring etc:

"Greetings holiday makers! The time is almost here for you to pack your bags, throw on some flip-flops, slap on some sun cream and come and join us on Paradise Island (aka Woolie 2 as we affectionately call it) for what could well be the best 8 days of your life ever!!!

Forget the Caribbean! Forget Hawaii! You can look forward to the most wonderful tropical island holiday ever. It's going to be perfect! You have been specially selected as a VIP guest on my Island for sunny days lounging by the ocean and amusements provided by our resident entertainers.

I, the owner of this Island, hope that all your dreams will come true as you spend time with my management team who will endeavour to give you the time of your life in Paradise.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Billy O’Naire

Owner of Paradise Island"

What are Ventures? For those of you who don’t know, ventures are great holidays for 11-14’s run by a national organisation (CYFA Pathfinder Ventures) and they have a focus on God. Although run by Christians a good number of those who come aren’t. Whoever you are, where ever you are from you are bound to love it! Each day is packed full of fun games, activities, craft, sports. There's time to relax and lots to do for non-sporty types too. There is also a big day out which we usually spend at a theme park. In 2010 we went to Thorpe Park; in 2011 we went to an outdoor activity centre for archery, abseiling and lots more too and in 2012 and 2013 we went to Chessington World of AdventureWe hope to do the same sort of things in 2014 although it's too early in our planning for us to be able to tell you precisely what we'll be doing. It's the ultimate fun holiday for all and it gives parents a well deserved break!

Woolhampton 2
is a great place to find out about Jesus from the Bible; meet friends & make new ones and enjoy fun activities with leaders who care. If you're sporty, arty, dramatic, musical, sensible, energetic, relaxed or simply up for a laugh, join us for a great week! Stunning grounds. Amazing facilities.

Where is it? Woolhampton 2 is held at a boarding school (Elstree school) near Reading and it has brilliant facilities including a swimming pool, a sports hall with 5-a-side football, basketball and badminton, a squash court, 3 astro-tennis courts, a dedicated arts and craft room, volleyball pitch, padder tennis, assault course and acres of wonderful grounds.

Is it safe? Absolutely. All the volunteers are selected and trained to take the greatest care of the children. All leaders are CRB cleared and wise risk assessment is at the core of all we do.

How much will it cost? 2014's Venture will cost £239 per person and remains fantastic value for money. The price includes all meals, the day out, numerous other activities and craft materials too. The only additional money members need to bring will be for the tuck and book shops!
