Basecamp Kingscross - TBKX1

Basecamp, Training
13 - 19 Jun, Kingscross , S5 - S6, £199.00
Accompanied travel: Glasgow, Ardrossan

Basecamp is for you if you are over 16 in S5 or S6 at school or under 18 and have recently left school

Basecamp includes worship, Bible teaching, training sessions, activities, and time to relax. Previous attendees talk about the huge benefit of Basecamp as a place to go deeper in faith, get into the Bible, learn new skills for mission and develop lasting friendships.

There will be excellent Bible engagement sessions, group discussion and key workshops designed to help you develop the skills you need to work with children and young people and introduce them to the Christian faith. You can expect to think about: 

  • how you can help with small group teaching 
  • how to care for your small group of young people 
  • how best to answer young people’s questions 
  • the purpose of games and how to lead them 
  • how to encourage positive behaviour 


Each Basecamp trainee has an Advisor who helps them to put together their own training plan. 

The COmMISSION Programme

Basecamp is part of the COmMISSION programme. In addition to training, we also provide the opportunity to put your training into action by serving as a team member on a holiday or mission team.

Finish the summer with a weekend of review and celebration where there will be time, along with others, to share and reflect on the part you and hundreds of others have played in sharing Jesus with Scotland’s young people.


Lendrick Muir is the venue for this year’s review weekend from 19-21 August 2022. (Cost and registration are included in your Basecamp booking.)



The fee for Basecamp covers

  • Your place at Basecamp and the Review Weekend
  • Accommodation, food, and resources
  • Travel from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Basecamp

We are able to offer COmMISSION at a substantially discounted fee as a result of generous donations and encourage all participants to consider how they can meet this. We have even prepared some ideas for you!

We do not want anyone to miss out because of costs, though. Please contact commission@suscotland, if you would like to discuss this.

What's the location like?

Being on an island brings its own special sense of adventure and the beautiful island of Arran is just off the west coast of Scotland. It really is an amazing location with fantastic outdoor activities, great beaches, impressive mountains, a historic castle and loads more to see and do. Our campsite is the ideal place to stay for a great island holiday – come and try it for yourself!

What's Outside?

Our campsite near Whiting Bay is close to the sea and sleeping in tents means there’s a truly outdoor feel to the holiday. There are loads of great facilities nearby and on site activities include archery, wide games and a fabulous water slide, which is great on a hot day. Come ready to make some new friends!

What’s inside?

Indoor facilities at our well-equipped campsite include dining room, meeting room, toilets and showers.

Where is it?

Kingscross is not far from Whiting Bay, on the east side of the island of Arran.
