YJourney is the youth wing of Journeying. It was set up in 2009 to complement the mission of the main 'parent' organisation by offering similar experiences for young people with an emphasis on action and adventure. After more than 10 valuable years, we are currently resting Y Journey while we undertake a period of review, refocusing the compass for the next ten years.
So what makes YJourney different? There are already several organisations in Britain that offer strong provision for young people in a Christian context including Scripture Union holidays and various festivals, however being part of Journeying means that YJourney reflects the ethos of its parent where terms such as 'small', 'informal,' and 'off the beaten track' are key to the experience.
The YJourney holiday does not follow the large scale celebration model. It doesn't seek to 'convert', but rather explore (faith, people, the natural world etc.) It's small-scale (up to 20 people) and embraces the outdoors while remaining safe and inclusive.
Guests on the adult Journeying holidays help to fund YJourney as part of the cost of each adult holiday is set aside to make YJourney more affordable for young people.
