Who?

Those who call themselves Christians and are school leavers or undergraduates are welcome to come to Glod as ‘ALs’. Some were involved in Glod at school, but many come for the first time as ALs without knowing anyone (and that soon changes).

What?

ALs come to Glod to:

  • SERVE behind the scenes with practical tasks  
  • LEARN more of the Christian faith with the AL teaching programme.
  • BELONG to a team, making friends with Christians their age.

What's it like?

Who would have thought that cleaning toilets and washing up could be so enjoyable, but it is. It’s something to do with being part of a close-knit team that laughs lots together as the tasks are done. Another memorable aspect to the week is playing fun games with the ALs each evening, as well as doing some of the afternoon activities with the campers.

For many sharing their faith alongside other ALs of their own age including 2-3 hours of Christian teaching a day makes the whole experience life-changing. Come along and find out for yourself. Below is what a day at camp would look like.

Example of a typical AL daily timetable:

7.45 Breakfast & packed lunch prep

8.45 Eat breakfast

9.10 Wash up and prep afternoon drinks and cake

10.00 Morning Christian Meeting with all the campers

10.30 Cleaning bathrooms & hoovering 

11.15 Widegame with all the campers

12.00 Bible talk for ALs and Leaders

12.45 Lunch followed by afternoon activities/free time

5.45 Supper

6.30 Wash up supper/prep hot chocolate

7.25 Evening Christian Meeting with all the campers

8.00 Serve hot chocolate

8.15 AL Bible study followed by prayers

9.45 Organised fun

What AL’s have said… 

 “I enjoyed the Bible teaching, the sport and making friends for life”

   “It is so refreshing every time I come. This week I’ve pressed the reset button.”

   “I didn’t realise how much helpful Christian input you get as an AL”

   “I haven’t had a bad moment”

   “I love Glod to bits”
