11-14 Residentials intro

Hello, it’s nice to have you here! This is where you can find links to our current residentials for 11-14s.

We passionately believe in the power of time-away with young people. Relationships are built, God moves and memories are made (plus we do all the hard work so you don’t have to!).

We have two main residentials for 11-14s: Fort Rocky and Switch. Fort Rocky is an evangelistic weekend for non-Christian young people, aged 11-16, to explore faith and engage in new ideas alongside their youth group, whilst Switch (formerly Evangelism Weekender) is a discipleship weekend to equip 11-16s to share their faith in a way that is unique to who they are. Find more information for each of these by clicking the links below.

Resources subscribers qualify for a £5 per head discount - woohoo!. Please contact us at residentials@yfc.co.uk to receive a discount code. 

“Thank you ever so much for the wonderful weekend that you’ve organised and led. AMAZING” Leader at Fort Rocky 

Fort Rocky


Fort Rocky has changed lives for nearly 30 years. This incredible residential provides a unique environment for non-churched 11-16s to come and explore faith alongside their friends whilst having the weekend of a lifetime.

Think action-packed roadshows and interest-centred workshops. Think outdoor activities and one-of-a-kind late night, after-hours fun. Think making memories. Think non-Christians meeting Jesus and those on the fence ‘getting’ it. Think invaluable, relationship-building time with your group.

Evangelism Weekender


The heart of Switch is to unpack what it is to love Jesus so much you can’t help but want to see your friends follow Him too. To be at the point where you know that He is the ultimate hope-bringer and life-giver.

This weekend for Christian 11-16s will give young people the opportunity to connect with God and be equipped to share their faith in a way that is perfectly suited to who God has made them to be. With amazing worship, inspiring talks and topic-focused seminars there is a whole bunch to mull over. Throw in a good dose of outdoor activities, a unique after-hours programme and creative workshops and you have one top-notch weekend.
