“Choose Your Character”
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “The believers who are the most perfect in faith are those who are best in their character.” Tirmidhi
This year’s YM National Residential has “Character” at the heart of it’s theme. We will aim to develop the Good Character of our Young Muslims through Activities, Workshops, and Reminders. As always, one of our main goals is to develop a deep sense of Community within our Youth, insha’Allah.
The Residential price includes Meals and Beds, although attendees must bring their own bedding (pillow/sleeping bag).
The Youngsters can expect to have a great time during their activities, which include a Bonfire, Archery, Climbing, raft building and Night Games.
All of our Lead Mentors are DBS Checked, and we will have all Child and Adult Safeguards in place, including a greater Adult to Child Ratio than required.
Please arrange your own transport to and from the Campsite, making note of the drop off and collection times.
Places are limited and offered on a first come, first served basis.
Things to bring
Coat (preferably waterproof)
Outdoor footwear (including a spare in case they get wet)
Hat and gloves (if cold)
2 pairs of jeans and tracksuit bottoms or other appropriate trousers (Some Activities require supports that go over trouser legs and around the waist. For this reason, skirts and dresses may not be suitable.)
Long sleeved top for archery
Trainers (old – as may get muddy)
6 pairs of Socks
(Boys and girls will be on separate accommodation blocks, however Fajr prayer may be in congregation, so extra clothing may be required.)

Food, drinks & snacks will be provided, but if you do want some extras, there is a small tuck-shop on-site. Please do not bring large amounts of money.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT WE ARE MADE AWARE OF ANY ALLERGIES.
All valuables including mobile phones will be the responsibility of the children themselves. Please avoid bringing expensive or electrical items.
We cannot take responsibility for losses or breakages of items.
