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.

I just wanted to let you know how much my son enjoyed himself recently at Castlerigg. He’s been on a high since he got back. To give you an idea of how much, we went to Disneyworld Florida at Christmas for my 50th birthday and I think you surpassed that!

Thank you once more for everything over the weekend. I know it is said a lot about Castlerigg but it truly is a blessing to Young People. The institution that you run and the team there are a credit to not only the catholic church but youth work as a whole.  Feb 2015

Thank you Castlerigg Team, you have truly inspired me and I cannot express how grateful I am.

"I have just returned home from my visit to Castlerigg with my school . I just wanted to say how thankful I am to all the staff that made our stay to wonderful, I  have loved it so much and have cherished the amazing week that I have embarked on. The team involved in our trip were truly inspirational and made our stay so exciting and meaningful, it was so great to listen to their stories and learn how they have grown in their faith. This week I have felt to much closer to God and completely spiritually renewed, I have learned more about myself and others in a way that I never thought was possible. Thank you so much for everything you did for us and for making our trip so amazing;  I will never forget this week, I have had the best time ever!"
