Camp leaders are highly motivated, servant-hearted and love working as part of a team. Leaders have the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus throughout the various activities and time spent together during camp, as well as through informal Bible talks and discussion.
Leaders benefit from working together as part of a team, spending time together in prayer and Bible study as well as serving in community with other Christians from a range of backgrounds. Being a leader at camp is a lot of hard work but is a fun and rewarding way to spend a week of your summer.
Although there are already a number of regular leaders in the FCYC leadership team, new applications are welcome at any time, and leaders will be allocated to a camp dependent on their availability and on space at the camp. All new leaders must fill in the Online Application Form by the end of February in order to be considered for this summer’s camps, and must be able to attend the FCYC Training Day, which will take place on Saturday 25th April 2020.

FCYC aims to ensure that its leaders have been trained in five main areas – Safeguarding, being a good leader, working with young people who have Additional Support Needs, giving Bible talks to young people, and leading discussion groups.
