Book yourself and your young people in to the event through our dedicated youth group booking site (keep reading and you’ll get to the link below!). We’ll ask you for names and ages of each young person coming.
Unsurprisingly, each person coming needs an event ticket! These tickets don’t include accommodation so you’ll need to book this separately, or get yourself some Indoor Camping action.
When you book, a 20% deposit is required for each young person, and a 50% deposit is required to secure camping pitches. Deposits are paid at the time of booking and are non-refundable. Youth leaders do not pay a deposit and there’s a different price for the 11-13s and the 14-18s.
To help you out, we’ve held prices down for youth groups, so instead of a price increase at the start of February, prices will be held until the 1st March.
Youth leaders bringing groups of 8 young people or more may qualify for a free place if they stay with their group in the youth programme and meet the requirements detailed in the Terms & Conditions. If you prefer to access the adult programme, that’s fine with us, but we are unable to offer you a free place.
Your free place will not show on the booking site, but don’t worry! We will allocate free places after we receive your booking and will send you an invoice showing the final amount due. Please don’t pay the full amount at the time of booking, wait until you receive an adjusted invoice.
If more young people want to join your group after you have made your initial booking, this is easy to do. Simply use the ‘Manage My Booking’ link in your confirmation email and add them on!
For simplicity, you can also book your family into the event using the Youth Booking site. FYI if your church has already created a group booking for Harrogate, your family – not your youth group! – can be counted as part of that group. This will count towards the total church group size, which may help them qualify for a free space (1 for every 16 people booked).
As you go through the booking site, you will have an opportunity to book camping pitches.
There’s a choice of 3 pitch sizes and the good news is that you pay for the pitch, not the number of people! Just decide how many people are camping and work out how best to fit them all in for the lowest price – but remember to leave enough space between tents to get in and out!
Small pitch (2.5m x 4m) £100
Medium pitch (6m x 4m) £225
Large pitch (7.5m x 6m) £375
These should fit a fairly average sized 2, 4 or 6 berth tent respectively but it’s up to you to check the actual size of the tents you are bringing, as we can’t accept responsibility for any tents that don’t fit the space they are booked for.
Be as creative as you like, tents are not mandatory, you can make your own den/shelter/somewhere for privacy and sleeping! Fairy lights can be used if they have LED bulbs and are battery powered.
* that young people’s tents/dens must be for boys or girls, not mixed, and be warned there is a noise curfew! Camping is open to all guests, so please be considerate. Full T&Cs for camping can be seen here and you must read these carefully! There is lots of helpful info in there and things you NEED to know before you rock up.
* the floors are concrete so tent pegs can’t be used. Please make sure your tents can stand on their own without them, or bring an alternative means to secure your guy ropes (weights, sandbags, large bottles of value cola…).
We’re sorry, but for safety reasons, you can’t bring any stoves or cook in the camping hall. However, hot water will be provided free of charge (there will be a ‘Pimp my Pot Noodle/Porridge/Pasta’ competition) and there are several supermarkets nearby for replenishments!
You can store cold food in a cool bag or box and there will be a freezer for ice packs. There will be catering outlets at the venue, so you could survive without going out of the building, but there are lots of restaurants in Harrogate itself, including Wetherspoon’s and McDonald’s just a few minutes’ away.
