Summer camp group stars in our new video

North West Summer Camp, organised by The Churches of God, celebrated 25 years of holidaying at Barnstondale in the heart of the Wirral by being the stars of the centre’s new promotional video. The group enjoyed a jam-packed stay at Barnstondale this August, but with some added extras as a film crew was on site to capture the fun.

North West Summer Camp has been coming to Barnstondale since 1991 with its array of facilities first attracting them to the site, and the fun and friendly environment bringing them back year-on-year. So to celebrate the group’s 25th year returning to the centre, the children and adults from the camp went in front of the camera and showed off everything Barnstondale has to offer by enjoying an extra full day of activities, including rock climbing, archery and rifle shooting.

Barnstondale manager, George Jones was thrilled with the outcome, saying: “We always have a great week with North West Summer Camp and there was really no better group to help us show off the facilities and the great times that our visitors have here at Barnstondale. We hope that the video demonstrates just why groups keep coming back year after year.”

Hayley Woods, one of the leaders from North West Summer Camp spoke of her admiration for Barnstondale: “Every year we bring on average 90 people to stay here for a week, including about 60 children. Every single person leaves having had a great time and itching to come back the following year. The chance to be a part of Barnstondale’s new promotional video was really the icing on the cake for us. We loved being a part of something so important for an organisation that we truly love.”

Keep an eye out for North West Summer Camp’s starring role in our new promotional film coming this Autumn.
