Welcome to Compass Christian Camp, the Bible-centred summer camp based in the heart of the Lake District for 11-17 year olds. So what’s it all about? Well, since 1975 loads of young people have been studying one incredible book, having crazy amounts of fun, learning awesome truths, enjoying plenty of food, being served by passionate leaders, engaging with stretching questions and making great friends!

Here you’ll find all sorts of information about camp ranging from the teaching programme and awesome activities, to what a typical day at camp looks like, including views from past campers. For those wanting to find out more or have a nostalgic look back we’ve links to our Flickr galleries and YouTube videos.

Throughout the year we’ll post information about the upcoming camp, including booking forms and everything you need to know to prepare for camp. During the week of camp itself we update a daily blog so friends and family back home can see how much fun everyone is having!
