VENUE
Kingswood, Barn Lane, Albrighton, Wolverhampton, WV7 3AW
The site is surrounded by lovely countryside. Directions to the site can be obtained from any SATNAV application. When you near the site there will be plenty of signs directing you to the site. Once at the site you will need to be buzzed in. Attendees are required to arrange their own transport to and from the venue.

SLEEPING & FOOD ARRANGEMENTS
The site accommodation has two wings consisting of dormitory rooms sleeping between six to twelve people per room. Segregation is important, so one wing will be dedicated to sisters and the other wing will be dedicated to brothers. There are communal shower and toilet provisions, which are of a clean and modern standard (we checked!). Family rooms are no longer available.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided during your stay. Please let us know of any dietary requirements in advance. Note: All meat products will be sourced from Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC) sources.

LECTURES
Theme: Lives of the Greatest Prophets
- An overview of who are Messengers and Prophets
- The belief of all the Prophets
- An overview of the biography of the five greatest Prophets
- The lessons we learn from their stories
Lecture packs will be provided.

ACTIVITIES
All activities are led by Kingswood qualified instructors. Activities are carried out in groups with a maximum size of 12 people. Amongst the activities are: abseiling, rock climbing, archery, zipwire, aeroball and the campfire. There are also activities for those with disabilities. Note: the activities are subject to change.

FEE STRUCTURE
Ages 5 and over (children and adults): £65 early bird*, £75 standard
All the activities that we have chosen are suitable for ages from as young as 5 years old. However, take note that for some activities this is contingent upon the safety harnesses fitting the child. This will be assessed at the time by the qualified instructors. The cost includes accommodation, food, lecture notes and activities.

Ages from 2 up to (but not including) 5 years (infants): £40 early bird*, £50 standard
Infants will need to be accompanied with their guardian during their stay, as a creche will not be provided. The cost includes accommodation and food.

Ages 0 up to (but not including) 2 years (babies): Free
Babies will need to be accompanied with their guardian during their stay, as a creche will not be provided. Since there is no cost for babies it is assumed that the guardian will provide the food for the baby and the baby will be sleeping in a travel cot and not the beds available at the site. If a bed is required for a baby then this will cost the same as for an infant.

* Early Bird Note: Once registered, the latest you will be able to benefit from the early bird discount will be the 31st of July. If payment is made after this date, the regular rate will be charged.
