Residential Project

The aim of the Residential Project is to broaden experience through involvement with others in a residential setting.


Participants will engage in a shared purposeful activity away from home for a period of at least 5 consecutive days (four nights).
The activity must be with people who are not your usual peers from school work, youth group etc.

The activity must be purposeful - for example a camp to learn something or provide service. It is not a holiday!

The following is a list of ideas for Residential Projects if they meet the above criteria.
