HYC 2020: Covid-19 Update
It is with enormous regret that we must announce the cancelation of Hilfield Youth Camp 2020 as a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic. This decision has been made in consultation with the Society of St Francis and with consideration to the health of our leaders, campers, the friary and the community which resides there. We do not feel that it would be possible to provide the same quality experiences of HYC and also ensure the safety of all on camp. We will be making contact with those families who have already paid deposits or full amounts for camp bookings in order to arrange refunds.
We are saddened to know that we will not be able to share another amazing camp experience with all of our new and returning campers, but we hope that you will be able to join us for a reunion weekend in February 2021 and for a better than ever HYC in 2021!

The HYC Reunion is a weekend of fun held in February for camper who have attended the main camp in any previous year. Reunions are held in church halls in different spots around the country each year to try and ensure that they are accessible for all campers.
The HYC Reunion 2021 will be announced in January 2021.
Hilfield Youth Camp at a Glance
A Bit of Background
Hilfield Youth Camp began in 1976 as an alternative to larger Christian camps and festivals. Over 40 years the camp has continued to run through a small community of committed volunteers, many of whom were once campers themselves! The camp is a place where young people come together as a community to learn more about Jesus, themselves and others, as well as have fun and make new friends.
We promote a sense of community and the opportunity to work alongside the Brothers at the friary. We aim to encourage individuals to learn more about God and develop their spirituality and gifts.
The leadership has a caring and encouraging style, allowing individuals to express their feelings and positively recognise the validity of their own views.
