Q3 aims to provide an excellent holiday experience for older teenagers. We have a packed schedule full of different activities, while also giving young people who come lots of freedom to choose what they'd like to do. We have all sorts, from going to the beach, BBQs, to sports, craft and quieter games. There really is something for everyone. We even have a special fun 'theme' each year. E.g in 2016 it was 'Quantock Castle' medieval theme. In 2014 it was "One way to live in the West", in 2013 "Pirates of the Quaribbean." Check out the galleries!
Every evening, the Café opens. There's a round-up of the day's thrills, the 'hero of the day' competition, music, quizzes, film nights and the final night banquet; just because the day's over, the fun doesn't have to be!
On several days we head out of Quantock to make the most of Somerset. There's beach day, 'hunt the leader' day, and every year various activity options. in recent years we have done karting, high ropes, kayaking, zorbing, horse-riding, archery, mountain-biking, laser quest and more...
Safety is a primary concern to us. We take all reasonable precautions in ensuring the safety of any young people who come on Quantock 3. All our leaders are fully trained for activities they run. All come with enhanced DBS (CRB) disclosure and careful referencing.
Quantock 3 is part of CPAS Ventures, a national charity working with young people that for over 50 years has run residential Ventures each summer. There are currently about 90 of them. You can find out more about them, and contact them directly, through their website.
When you pay £245 for the cost of the venture, you can rest assured knowing that's all you need to pay. It covers all CPAS office support & insurance, food, accommodation, activities and entertainment. You do not need to pay anymore to have an unforgettable week of great fun, food and friendship.
Our aim is to make sure no one misses out on coming through lack of funds. We have access to the CPAS bursary scheme which will help those in genuine need. Please contact us for more details and how to apply.
Our leaders are all volunteers and they also give towards the cost of the Venture. We charge what we need to, to make Quantock happen. Any leftover funds are put back into making Quantock 3 even better for next year.
Quantock 3 Venture is a Christian summer holiday. To that end there will be Christian teaching throughout the week. This is all undertaken in such a way that aims to inform the young people who come about the historic Christian faith so they can make up their own minds about what they believe. Leaders are happy to answer any questions they might have.
CPAS Ventures have a Statement of Faith which can be found here. As a leadership team we are also in sympathy with the beliefs expressed by the Doctrinal Basis of UCCF:thechristianunions which can be found here.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries about the holiday.
