About Kairos

Find out more about what happened at Kairos last year in 2019 on our video here!

Kairos is a Christian youth camp happening in Thirsk every August bank holiday weekend, this year between Friday 28th  to Monday 31st of August DSC_87982020. It is aimed at Christian Young people aged 11-18′s to come as a youth group.  All groups must have a responsible group leader.

Kairos means the right or opportune moment in Greek. It is the point in our lives when we decide to stand for what we believe in. The camp will be an exciting time of live worship, workshops, sports, activities and fun.

Kairos will start on the Friday afternoon and finish on Monday with a morning celebration at Hollybush Christian Fellowship in Thirsk. Groups will need to bring their own tents or caravans and can either cater for themselves, have a catered option or buy food from the café.

The site will open at 1pm and activities will start from around 2pm and the main event will start at 7pm. Make sure you have your lunch before you come to site!  Please check out last years programme under the programme section if you want to get a feel of the weekend.
