Parents

A trip to Castlerigg can change a young person’s life. 

Castlerigg Manor residential centre has been a dedicated youth resource centre for more than 40 years. It is a unique environment where young people consider and reflect on life and faith, and grow in confidence and self-esteem.

I don’t know what you have done to my son, but he has come home a changed person (parent)

A visit to Castlerigg Manor will have a deep impact on your child in ways that will surprise you. We know because we speak from experience, we know because parents have told us just how much their young people got out of the visit. Make sure they get a place!

Your child’s school is offering each young person in the year group the chance to visit Castlerigg Manor. With so many choices on offer and the competition being what it is for time, attention and finance how will you choose?

All ages get something out of this trip

We want you to know that EVERY young person coming to Castlerigg will:

  • HAVE A GREAT TIME

  • EXPERIENCE A GREAT SENSE OF SELF AWARENESS AND SELF-ESTEEM

  • THEY WILL GROW IN CONFIDENCE AND SELF-BELIEF

  • FRIENDSHIPS WILL BE DEEPENED, RENEWED OR DEVELOPED

  • THEY WILL HAVE TIME OUT TO RELAX IN SAFE, BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS

And they will be welcomed and comfortable in a unique youth-focussed environment that is different from many opportunities they are offered at this time in their life.


  • We believe in the work, because we see the results.

  • We see young people grow

  • We see them leave with a greater sense of joy, and courage

  • We receive their spontaneous thanks and affirmation which speaks volumes.


So we would ask you to consider supporting your child’s opportunity to visit Castlerigg. We are happy to answer any questions you have and to meet personal needs of the young people.

Thank you for a life changing experience—(Erin)


I would also like to say how much he enjoyed his visit and he would love to come back again. He could not complement the staff enough and they are a credit to your organisation. He thought the staff were totally amazing, friendly, fun and very interesting people. He enjoyed roaming around the grounds and building stronger relationships with his friends.
