Youthscape has been organising summer camps for young people for more than 20 years now. Right from the beginning of our project, back in the early 1990’s, we organised camps for hundreds of local young people.Lives were changed and legends were born!

Yes, we’re really did make it snow in the middle of summer, thanks to a film studio’s special effects department! And yes, we did get the fire brigade to fill a forest clearing with enough foam to make 120 young people disappear!

This year, we also have young people from Luton heading to camp - but this time they’re being joined by thousands of other young people from around the UK.

Yes, it’s the first Satellites summer camp in just a few days time - and I know many of you have been praying for this special week.

For us it’s the culmination of months, even years of planning. For young people, whether from Luton or beyond, it could be a life-changing experience. Some will come from churches and want to deepen their Christian faith. Others will be finding out about faith for the first time.

It might be on a grander scale, but the importance and value of taking young people away in the summer is something we’ve believed in from the very beginning.

Thank you, as always, for your prayers.
