Come on holiday with us! Are you looking for a fun way to spend a whole week of your school holidays, or just a change of scene for the weekend? SU Holidays are a great way to get away and enjoy a holiday with others your own age.

Holidays - you belong here

In p5 - S6 or know someone who is?

We'd like to introduce you to our holiday programme, with events across Scotland during the school holidays (Easter, summer and the October break). 

Activities ranged from abseiling to music-making, kayaking to crafts – some holidays specialise, others had lots of everything. Great food, good friends, caring leaders and time to explore faith are a feature of every single event.

We have been running holidays for children and young people in Scotland for many decades and have great credentials. Around 2000 young people come on holiday with us year.

Join a local weekend and enjoy great activities, good food and time to explore the Christian faith together.

Come with friends from school or come on your own - our weekends are a great place to enjoy time away with people from your own group and to make new friends.

Every year, over 1,500 children and young people enjoy an SU Scotland residential experience on one of over 40 weekends. These events are run locally by regional offices and some of our associated trusts. The programme for the current year can be found in our events section. If you are interested in next year, similar events will be running, so please contact your local office.

Let us do the donkey work!

Are you a youth worker? We’d love to partner with you to plan a holiday Donkey Workevent for your group. Recently we put together a brand new resource pack, designed to help youth workers – anyone who works with young people in churches, schools and youth groups – to plan a holiday or weekend event.

2017 International Project

Every year our SU Holidays & Missions focus on a project through which children, young people and volunteers can raise funds for less fortunate young people in other countries.

The International Project for 2017 sees us focus again on our friends and partners in Open Bible, Ukraine and their day camps. Open Bible have more requests than they can handle from village churches asking them to come and lead missions with children and young people. Rampant inflation and political instability mean churches need financial support, as well as people. We can help to fund these events, providing craft and games resources and enabling the children to have a nutritious meal. Open Bible's name says everything you need to know about the message they share!

We got off to a great start at our Event Leadership Conference in Jan at Lendrick Muir, raising over £2400! Thank you to everyone who has already given so generously to this. You can give online to this by going to our Donate page: chose the 'Give to a specific region or work' option, then select 'Other', then put 'International Project 2017' in the text box.

Fundraising resources will soon be available.
