We are excited to announce applications for VICTA Family Weekends are now open. We will be hosting two Family Weekends, one in Spring (22 to 25 May 2020) and one in Summer (31 July to 3 August 2020).
The Summer weekend is our biggest of the year and we will be heading back to Condover Hall, JCA Adventure’s flagship activity centre set in the Shropshire countryside. The site centres around a grand, grade 1 listed Elizabethan manor and is home to an exciting range of on-site activities. We have sole use of the venue and had a fantastic time when we visited for our Summer Family Weekend for the last two years.
The site has all the facilities we need for a fantastic, action-packed few days. Sleeping accommodation consists of dormitory style units, with bunk beds, please note not all rooms at this venue offer en-suite bathrooms.
Our family weekends are a great opportunity to try new things, meet people and share experiences. We provide a range of amazing activities for you and your children, as well as a chance to attend workshops and talks. As usual, we will have our themed party night with competitions and prizes up for grabs! Our theme for this weekend is ‘VICTA at the Olympics’!
The minimum age for the activity groups is five years old. Younger siblings are welcome and in a change to previous years, the crèche will be available on both Saturday and Sunday. The provision of the creche will be subject to demand and volunteer levels.
If you would like to apply for your family to attend, please complete the online application form below. Please note this form covers both this May weekend and the August summer weekend, so you will need to indicate which you are applying for.
If you are offered a place on a family weekend, you will need to pay 50% non-refundable deposit of your family’s place. The remaining balance will be due no later than six weeks before the activity. The contribution required is £50 per person (0 to 4 years are free). Your contribution covers your family’s accommodation, all organised activities and three warm meals per day.
The actual cost to VICTA per person to attend a family weekend is approximately £200, so if you are in a position to pay more than the minimum required that would be greatly appreciated. More importantly, given the costs, it is really important that you inform us if you are unable to accept your place so that it can be offered to another family on the waiting list. If you have any difficulty with the costs involved in attending this activity, please contact the activities team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do expect to be over-subscribed so please make sure you get your applications in before the closing date.
