Welcome to Contagious Max West

Welcome to Contagious Max West

arrivals

Contagious MAX West starts on Saturday the 5th of August at Pioneer Centre, Cleobury Mortimer, Kidderminster DY14 8JG.

We ask for young people to arrive between 2pm and 3pm.

When you arrive, we will register your child and introduce them to other young people playing games outside.

A little later in the afternoon, once they have had chance to learn a few names and meet the leaders, we will give them a short tour of the centre and show them to their rooms.  They will quickly meet other young people who are feeling the same (excited and/or nervous) and will make some good lasting friendships. If parents have any questions we are ready to chat with you too.

Please note, if you are travelling by train, you will need to arrange your own transit from the station to the venue.  Due to the recently introduced Package Travel Regulations, we are no longer able to offer a shuttle service to and from the station.

accommodation

The young people’s rooms have between 4 and 6 beds each with an en-suite bathroom. We try to accommodate small groups together in two or three rooms; their leader will be in a room nearby.  We will do our best to meet your sharing requests, but this is not always possible.

All bedding is provided but please bring a towel. This year, on the first evening, the young people will be asked to make up their own beds using the sheet, duvet cover and pillow case provided.


There are several common rooms located around the buildings, which we can make into good hangout places for the young people.

We are sharing the site with Contagious GO West for young people aged 11-14 years.   They will be accommodated in a separate blocks and have their own programmes and leadership teams.

Departure

Contagious MAX West will finish on Friday 11th August with a response meeting at 11am. We invite all parents/carers to join us for this meeting and to see what the young people have been doing throughout the week.

After the response meeting, packed lunches will be available for the young people. We would love it if parents/carers could bring a picnic lunch so we can all eat together. We expect departures to be no later than about 1pm, but do let us know if you need to leave early.
