What People Say

I’ve been an Assistant Leader on camp twice now and have loved it! As well as the practical side, serving meals and setting up rooms, ALs have their own training programme so we’re better equipped to lead young people in the future.

An Assistant Leader

I love leading on The Buzz; I’d have to say it’s possibly the best week of my year!

Ann-Marie, Leader

We sent our teenagers to the Vibe again this year; every single young person came back encouraged in their walk with Jesus. Some have come back fired up to live for Him; others have come back clearer on why they need to take Him seriously; all of them came back having had a brilliant holiday.

Robin, Church Leader

The Buzz is a really fun way to spend your half term and a great way to get to know Jesus and what he has done for you. I have been three times before and I loved it.

Erin, 11

I loved all the activities and time with my friends. The food was amazing and the talks and Bible Studies really made me think.

Simon, 11

The buzz was fun and cool. I got to meet lots of new friends. I got to learn lots of new things about God and Jesus that I didn’t know before. It was all too good for me to have a favourite thing, but I did enjoy doing the choice activities.


I’ve been going to The Vibe for years, first as a member and now as an assistant leader! One of the things that I go back year after year is the friendships that I’ve made and the opportunity to chat up again.


Quinta this year was amazing! I was so excited to be going back for my second year. I was able to catch up with old friends and make new ones, have loads of helpful Bible teaching and great activities. I can’t wait to go back next year!

Danny, 12

The talks were incredibly interesting and easy to grasp – I learnt a lot from them and any questions I had the leaders explained really clearly.

Lois, 13

My wife and I have been part of The Buzz@Smallwood Manor team since 2015, and it really is a highlight of our year!

Aled, Leader

We are sorry to say that it is with very heavy hearts that The Vibe and other linked sound holidays residentials this summet have been cancelled. We realised that this will be a big disappoinment to you as yet another highlight of the year is deleted from your diary. We are looking into what we might be able to do to allow us to meet in some way, most likely digitally rather than physically.
