HARP Sports Workshop ’17! Apply Here!

Summer will soon be with us again, and this year we have an exciting August planned for you all!

Join us for our UK HARP Sports Workshop 2017! 

This summer we bring you our second UK HARP Sports Workshop!

Last year proved to be a great success and so we have decided to bring this back for another year!

Each morning will commence with a schedule similar to that of a HARP workshop, with the afternoon packed with sports and activities with the aim to connect to God and one another, and to better understand the beauty of team work and understanding, determination, unity and cooperation and …. to test our limits!

Although this workshop is sport heavy, and a general interest in sports is required, you do not need to be an ‘athlete’ to attend; though we expect all attendees to participate fully in the schedule.

For: HARP ages 11-18 years (beginning year 7-just left year 13)

Fee: £120 for the first participant, and £110 for subsequent siblings.
