Basecamp is for you if you are over 16 in S5 or S6 at school or under 18 and have recently left school 

Basecamp includes worship, Bible teaching, training sessions, activities, and time to relax. Previous attendees talk about the huge benefit of Basecamp as a place to go deeper in faith, get into the Bible, learn new skills for mission and develop lasting friendships. 

There will be excellent Bible engagement sessions, group discussion and key workshops designed to help you develop the skills you need to work with children and young people and introduce them to the Christian faith. You can expect to think about:  

  • How you can be a valuable part of a team
  • What Christian leadership looks like
  • How you can help with small group teaching
  • How to care for your small group of young people
  • The purpose of games and how to lead them

Each Basecamp trainee has an Advisor who helps them to put together their own training plan.  

The COmMISSION Programme  

Basecamp is part of the COmMISSION programme. In addition to training, we also provide the opportunity to put your training into action by serving as a team member on a holiday or mission team.

Finish the summer with a weekend of review and celebration where there will be time, along with others, to share and reflect on the part you and hundreds of others have played in sharing Jesus with Scotland’s young people.

Lendrick Muir is the venue for this year’s Review Weekend from 23-25 August 2024. (Cost is included in your Basecamp booking, please indicate when booking if you will be attending The Review Weekend).

The fee for Basecamp covers
