The Emmaus Centre
Monday 3rd April – Saturday 8th April 2016
This year we are returning to The Emmaus Centre at Wydale Hall between the villages of Snainton and Brompton-by-Sawdon near Scarborough.
This centre has been used many times in the past the company, and both the boys and the staff have aways had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. The centre is a large self-catering stables conversion situated in the grounds of Wydale Hall and is around twenty minutes drive from Scarborough. We will have exclusive use of The Emmaus Centre and its facilities; which include a large All-Weather sports pitch, an adventure playground and orienteering course. As in previous years this will be a joint holiday with the Juniors and Company Section, although each section will be running their own programme of activities.
Activities for the holiday have now been finalised and these can be seen below. As normal we plan to use the centre as a base to visit attractions in the local area such as a Flaming Land Theme Park, 4×4 Driving and even Horse Riding. We will also make use of the attractions of Scarborough, as well as Swimming, Ten-Pin Bowling and a visit to the cinema.
Below are downloadable copies of the consent forms should you need them and also of our holiday packing guide. Please remember all boys must have a sleeping bag.
