The Youth Camp has been running since 1994 and over the years our invited speakers have included a number of missionaries from Grace Baptist Mission (GBM)

About 75 young people gather for a great week of bible teaching, fellowship, lots of chat, discussions, plenty of good food, as well as games and trips out.

We have every modern convenience at Root Hill! Hot showers, hair dryer, microwave, washing machine, tumble drier, & hot running water.

There is a fully carpeted dining room, armchairs in the lounge, an excellent bookstall & a fully stocked tuck shop at amazing prices. Full-size Snooker table, table tennis, go-karts, unicycle, trampolines, bouncy castle, bouncy slide, giant Jenga… etc. etc.

In fact, the only thing that resembles real camping is that you sleep in a tent. Food is of the highest quality – ask anybody who’s been before.

Our main speaker Stuart Harding (who co-pastors Trinity Baptist Church in Gloucester with Matt Gamston) will do a series of talks in the morning, then there’s optional games, (football, table tennis, cricket, rounders, volleyball etc.) or trips out by car convoy (e.g. beach, bowling, ice skating, McDonalds etc.)

In the evening meetings we had Paul Brunning (from GBM), Jim Sayers (church planting in Didcot), Tom Seidler (IT director of The Good Book Company) and Rosie Crowter (missionary in PNG) This was followed by lots of discussion & games over supper.
