PULSE camp is simply a way for young people to find out more about the Christian faith and to get answers to questions, whilst at the same time having a great weekend packed with fun.

Why a Christian camp?

There’s quite a bit wrong with the world today, but we CAN make sure that we grow up to make better choices in life, if we are inspired by the Bible.  It doesn’t mean we can’t have fun, but it does mean we can learn to avoid the things in life that harm us and others.  You have to agree – that is a pretty cool hack ?

Who are we?

Our history

PULSE evolved from a notion back in 2011 that local churches needed to take an intentional step towards connecting young people with the Christian faith, against a general backdrop of decline in church attendances.  2017 will be our fifth year of camp.  We are a collaboration between a group of local churches of many different Christian denominations.

The camp started out in 2012 as a joint project between Barford St. Martin parish church and City Gate Church, Salisbury following sponsorship by the Aldhelm Mission Fund and an endorsement by Bishop Nicholas.  It was originally held in the garden at Barford Lodge

The camp is now an ecumenical collaboration between the Nadder Team Benefice, Wilton Benefice, Wilton Baptist Church, City Gate church – Salisbury, St.Paul’s – Salisbury, Gillingham Community Church, Wincanton Community Church and The Boy’s Brigade – Alderholt Chapel.

The vision for the project set out in 2011 was to grow a camp for young people serving an area between Salisbury and Shaftesbury.


Bishop endorses our camp

“Bringing the Christian faith to children and young people, in a way that is accessible and relevant to their lives, is one of the greatest challenges facing churches today.  It is my hope that the camp will be part of the solution to this and that in these uncertain and sometimes broken times it will offer a touchstone for stability, personal growth and contentment.”

“It is also my hope that it will offer churches and other groups an opportunity to unite and collaborate in a potent and ecumenical, mission resource”.

Nicholas Holtham, Bishop of Salisbury.  July, 2012
