New Horizon has always seen working with young people as a vital and rewarding part of the week. Different programmes are geared to appropriate ages and cover from Creche through to, (and including) 18 years of age. Training is undertaken by everyone supervising or with involvement in any part of the Youth Programme and all such are Access NI checked.
New Horizon adheres to a Child Protection Policy and is registered with AccessNI to carry out relevant checks on volunteer staff.
Online registration will be available from Tuesday 2nd May until Friday 23rd June and will open again at New Horizon (Saturday/Sunday 6.30pm in the Bann Venue, the tent at the rear of the tented village).
The registration fee per child/young person is £20* per programme online until 23rd June. Registration at New Horizon is £25* per programme where places are available.
It actually costs around £35 per child/young person to hire the venues and equipment. The shortfall is covered through offerings received at the main tent and donations throughout the year. Click here for more information
We are very keen to ensure that cost is not a barrier to coming to the events. If you have difficulty with the registration fee then please feel free to contact the office in confidence.
The Crèche & SU Programme are for use only by children whose parents are attending the Morning Bible Teaching and/or Seminars. It would be appreciated if parents using the crèche over 5 mornings would offer to help on one morning. Click here to volunteer PLEASE NOTE THE SU PROGRAMME THIS YEAR WILL BE IN THE NEW SPORTSHALLS, WHICH ARE NEAR THE NEW HORIZON TENTED VILLAGE.
Salt Factory Sports are providing a fun-filled programme for children in P5-P7 on Monday to Friday evenings this year from 7.15pm to 9:15pm.
The On the Edge team will be running both the morning and evening programmes for Y8 – 11. Young people wishing to attend both must be registered in On the Edge :am AND On the Edge :pm.
The Livewire programme is geared for Y12-14 but those going into Y11 may attend.
Young people are allowed to attend Livewire & On The Edge without their parents at New Horizon. The young person’s parent should sign the consent form, but they will need to give the name of a responsible adult attending New Horizon such as their youth leader or parent of a friend.
Children must wear their badges or wristbands while at events. Parents must indicate at registration whether or not their children have permission to leave events unaccompanied.
Parents collecting children at the end of events should do so as promptly as possible.
Sometimes photographs or video clips are taken during the children and youth activities to be used for publicity purposes. If you have any objection to photographs or video footage of your child being taken please tick the relevant box on the application form.
