Who Can Apply?

Venture Week 2019 welcomes applications from full-time reception children through to year 9. Priority is given to those who attend Charlwood and/or Sidlow Bridge Parish Churches, parish children's groups, and/or who live in one of the two Parishes. We can only accommodate a maximum of 100 children, therefore please ensure that your child wishes to attend Venture Week before submitting the application.


The price includes lunch on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, all outings, crafts, a T-shirt and your child's food at the Saturday evening social.
You will need to supply a packed lunch (or money to buy lunch) for the Friday outing, and a packed lunch for Wednesday.

Financial Help: The JBTMT has offered to help local families in financial hardship with the cost of Venture Week. Please Email JBTMT directly for further information.


Venture Week is a community event and although our group leaders look after your child every day, a parent/grandparent/adult family member will be required to volunteer to help the leaders on at least one day. Without this help, Venture Week wouldn't be able to continue year on year.

Make sure you complete an Adult Volunteer Form or your child will not be able to attend. If for whatever reason you are unable to help, please contact us to discuss.

Safety & Discipline

Please make sure you have fully read, understand and agree to the Child Safety & Discipline Policy, as this contains important information directly relevant to you and your children.

The Application Forms

Sorry, the final deadline for applications to VW2019 has passed.
