Our holidays have a fun, friendly atmosphere, giving every young person the chance to explore the Christian faith and have an unforgettable holiday.

The holidays are led by a core leadership team of men and women overseen by Rev’d Anthony Bewes. A large number of additional volunteer leaders support them, providing one leader for every two or three teenagers on each holiday.

The Senior holidays in 2022 will be at Forres Sandle Manor School in the New Forest, and The Poplars near the Malvern Hills.

Enjoy

Whether coming for the first time and on their own, or returning with a group of friends, it’s often the friendships which have been the lasting legacy for many of their involvement with Lymington Rushmore.

From high-octane to relaxed, home-grown to offsite externally sourced, for the sporty, the arty, the musical – there’s something for everyone at Lymington Rushmore!
