We would love to see YOUR youth group at TeenStreet!
TeenStreet UK is running for its 3rd year on 3rd – 9th August 2023 at Capernwray Hall, Carnforth, and we hope to see you and your youth group there!
TeenStreet UK is open to participants aged 13-17.
Come and join us this summer to spend the week having fun, encouraging teens to go deep in their faith and learning how to be bold in sharing it with others, including those who have not yet heard about Jesus!
If you have questions about bringing your youth group that are not answered here, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com
Life at TeenStreet
A Typical Day
Main Hall which includes a time of worship, some games and a chance to learn about the theme for the day’s Bible Study.
Shhh Time a chance to be still and listen to what God might be telling you that day – stare at the clouds as they go past, look at the grass and marvel at God’s creation. Just shut your eyes and listen to the stillness.
NET1 a time to meet together with your small group to look deeper at the day’s Bible Study; there will be time to talk together and time for your own private Bible Study during that time.
Interact Time a chance to play games, join in with other fun activities or just hang out with friends. Get to know some new friends, or spend time with those you came with.
Seminars and workshops time to learn about your faith and how to share it with others, as well as other discussion topics and practical application
NET2 a time to meet with your small group to pray and be ready for the evening
Throne Room a time of worship, you’ll have the chance to go up for prayer if you would like to.
Interact Time hang out with friends, maybe join in with some night games or watch a movie in the evenings
NET3 a quick catch up with your small group
Lights Out bedtime!
Accommodation costs and options
There are two accommodation options for the week:
- Camping (bring your own camping equipment. Please note the use of stoves and other cooking equipment are not permitted. ) – £150 per person
- Accommodation block (same-gender shared room) – £260 per person
Both options include:
- Onsite toilet and shower facilities
- 3 meals provided each full day, as well as dinner on arrival day and breakfast and packed lunch on departure day
- Access to all teaching sessions, small group time, worship, and workshops and seminars
- Bible Study manuals.
Each person will have their own allocated space to pitch a tent or dorm to sleep in.
In both cases, a Youth Leader comes for free with every 6 teens!
Details of arrival day will be published soon.
You will need to make your own way to TeenStreet, but may choose to travel as a youth group.
Please make sure you arrive in enough time for your teens to pitch their tent if they are camping.
Once you reach the TeenStreet UK site, there will be team to direct you to where to go. Your first stop will be the registration point where everyone will sign in and collect their badge. You can then head to the accommodation.
Food and dietary requirements
Everyone at TeenStreet will have three full meals provided for during each day, as well as an evening meal on arrival day, and breakfast and a packed lunch on departure day. They may bring other food snacks if they wish, but they will not be able to cook onsite.
We hope that there will be something to enjoy at each meal, there will be a variety of options to choose from.
If you have any dietary needs, please let us know on the registration form.
If you have any additional queries about food, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No pets are allowed onsite except for registered service animals. If you have a service animal, please get in contact beforehand. We will need you to ensure it wears a harness or lead that identifies it at all times on site.
Unfortunately, we do not have the facilities for children and infants on-site.
RAG: Sponsored colour run
Every year TeenStreet UK will be raising funds for a project that works with teens. Teens can get involved by joining our sponsored race; each lap is roughly 1 mile long and we record how many laps are run so for per lap sponsorship. Even if they can’t run, teens can support the runners by cheering them on and high fiving them on their way round!
Safety and Security
Keeping everyone safe
The safety of your teenagers is a top priority for the TeenStreet UK leadership team.
We have 24-hour security on site for the whole week.
Further details on safety and security can be made available upon request.
All adults onsite must be DBS checked. All adults at TeenStreet UK are required to sign and follow the TeenStreet UK guidelines regarding their interaction with teens. For more detailed information about our child protection policies, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
Bringing a Group
Do groups need to bring a leader?
Our desire is to partner with the church’s youth group. Individuals or groups without leaders are certainly welcome at TeenStreet UK, but we believe that the time will be more effective if the teens and leaders go through the same experience.
How big a group can I bring?
We are not putting a limit on the number of teens that can come from any one Church. We want to encourage as many as possible to come and participate. Where possible it would be great to have a leader attend with every six teens – helping to run the NET groups.
There are 12 year olds in my youth group, can they come too?
We may be able to accept 12 year olds who are actively involved in and coming as part of a youth group, and can participate on a level with 13 and 14 year olds for small group Bible Study sessions as well as during the rest of the programme.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept 12 year olds wishing to sign up as individuals.
Youth group leaders and NET groups
Where possible we would encourage Churches to bring one leader for up to every six teens to run their NET groups.
If you are bringing a smaller group than six teens, we may combine your teens with others coming in other groups less than six, or as individuals. Please email to discuss this further.
Should a Church group want to stay together for their NET group sessions, this is possible as long as there is one leader to every six teens within that group. This ratio can be discussed in individual circumstances. If you are the leader booker of a large church group, please get in touch with us prior to the event by email at email@example.com
Individual teens from your church
We welcome individual teens as well, and will place them in a NET group for the week for small group time including Bible studies. Their coach (small group leader) will be there to support them during the week.
Churches without Youth Leaders
Unfortunately not all churches are able to send youth leaders.
In this instance, we will ensure that all teens are part of a suitable NET group with a coach who will look after them for the duration of the week.
How can a Youth Leader come for free?
We want to help youth leaders to invest in their teens, and so we want to invest in youth leaders by making it possible for them to come along!
For every six teens in a church group, bring one youth leader free – either for camping or shared room. Please get in touch with us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are bringing at least 6 teens from your church so we can arrange your free space.
You can use our online booking system, SolidRock, to create a unique code to pass onto anyone booking as part of your group. You will then be able to keep track of who has signed up and who still neds to sign up.
Once you are set up with a group booking, you may be able to add additional teen and youth leader names at a later date.
If you have any trouble with booking, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
