There are always opportunities to give money to the TeenStreet fund raising project - RAG - during the week.

— WHAT DOES TEENSTREET OFFER FAMILIES? —

Families are welcome at TeenStreet. We offer a children’s program for a variety of age groups. The purpose of the children’s program is to allow the kids to have a great experience during their week at TeenStreet, while it also makes it possible for the parents to have a set amount of hours to participate/work at TeenStreet

•    ToddlerStreet is for children 0-3 years of age
•    KidsStreet for children 4-9 years of age
•    InBetween for children 10-12 years of age

Outside of these programs parents have the sole responsibility to look after their children. 

There are certain jobs at TeenStreet that require the attention of both parents and where it has been necessary for them to have additional help with their children. This must be organised by the families themselves. Babysitters must register as Service Team and pay the required fees for TeenStreet. There is room for babysitters in the Service Team tent or they may organise their own accommodation. Babysitters are able to stay in the children’s programme as they watch the children, and they are very welcome to actively participate as helpers.
