Why you should come along to our EPIC 5-day summer residential

Sport and Faith Leader Tim is the go-to guy for our summer residential and wanted to share what all the fuss is about...

"Well, summer 2024 is finally here and as the smell of freshly cut grass and the lure of BBQ’s and ice cream fills us with a sense of happiness and joy, there's also something else round the corner which brings a sense of excitement and anticipation (not Euro 2024, but FYI #thisyearitsfinallycominghome!!) it is of course our Sportily summer 5-day residential at the TRAC centre just outside Newent. 

Our TRAC residential has been a longstanding flagship event of the summer holidays and is a time which over the years have provided young people from across the Sportily network with the chance to gather, connect, eat, and explore the Christian faith together.  This year will be no exception as we have a potential 70 young people signed up to share 5 days of raft building, climbing, archery, zip-wire, art, drama, BBQ, sport, amazing guest speakers, interactive workshops and much much more. 

The TRAC residential is more than just your average summer camp, the beautiful setting and sense of Christian hospitality allows TRAC to offer a safe space for young people to play sports, talk life, explore the Christian faith and make memories that will potentially be with them for life.  Over the last decade of running our residential, we've seen young people try new activities, make new friends, smash through doors they didn't even realise they could open, and for some, explore the Christian faith and experience Jesus for the first time in their lives. 

Our theme this year is "Ignite the Light," and we'll be unpacking and exploring how different areas of life offer the young people the chance to find light, bringing them peace, positive well-being, mental health, and joy, as well as exploring how the Christian faith is a light which can shine brighter than any other light and a light which the darkness can never put out. 

We always have a good mixture of Christian and non-Christian young people attend the residential and this year is no different. I always come away amazed by how God moves and works during the week in the mountain top moments and the smallest of whispers. 

Whether it's the live house band that gets you jumping or the quiet conversations with new friends that energises you, this residential is an adventure that's waiting for you to join.  Why not have a chat to someone you know who has been to our TRAC residential before and get a flavour of what may be in store for you and the memories and journey behind the door, waiting for you to open it and jump in."
