DTI will start with an evening meeting on Saturday 30 July and we'll finish at 11:30pm on Wednesday 03 August. We'll all head home on Thursday morning, 04 August.

WHAT HAPPENS AT DTI?
DTI is about inspiring and equipping young people to love God, love others and change the world. At DTI, the local church gathers together as one. We come together as family to worship Jesus, hear some great teaching from the Bible and spend loads of time learning how to pray for each other and hanging out in God’s presence.
There's also a jam packed schedule of football tournaments, open mic nights, music venues, seminars and coffee shops to keep you busy.
Every morning and evening we’ll come together to worship God, hear some great teaching from the Bible and spend loads of time learning how to pray for each other and hanging out in God’s presence.
Whether you're in need of a caffeine hit or just a chocolate brownie, we've got you covered. During the day there are café's to catch up with friends or play a board game, at night they turn in to live venues, with everything from DTI entertainment, to singer/songwriters or something a bit more vibey to dance to.
If sitting still isn't really your thing, don't worry about it! There's football, basketball, volleyball, table tennis and a huge selection of inflatables for you to enjoy. We also have the dodgems making their DTI debut!!
There are seminars throughout the day where you can dive deeper into the topics that interest you. Come prepared with your notebooks, you're going to want to jot this down.

First things first... thank you for everything you do!
We know that the idea of taking your youth group camping probably fills you with all sorts of emotions, so we've done our best to make bringing them to Dreaming the Impossible as simple as we can. Whether that's our easy group bookings system, the packed schedule with something for everyone in your group, or the brilliant kids groups for your little ones, we've taken care of it all.
Throughout the week, we're going to be diving deeper in to some big topics through seminars.
Throughout history God has raised up young leaders who love Jesus and want to fearlessly follow Him, believing that nothing is impossible with God. The ‘Academy stream’ is for those of you who want to know what it looks like to be a leader in God’s Kingdom and are hungry to grow as a disciple of Jesus. The team from Onelife will be running this stream.
LET'S GO STREAM
The message of Jesus and his kingdom is the best news ever and our job is to spread the word! Problem is…many of us find this hard! This stream is for those of you who want to grow in boldness and share your faith both in words and action. LET’S GO!
Everyone has their own unique DNA, but what about DTI’s DNA? This stream covers a bunch of things that we value and we long for you guys to take hold of for yourselves.
So much of our culture is obsessed with fitness. Looking right, feeling right, being ‘FIT’ - but what does the bible have to say about being FIT? At DTI we want to be healthy in every way…healthy bodies, healthy minds, healthy emotions. Let’s get FIT together.
YOUTH LEADER STREAM
Calling all youth leaders, these gatherings every morning are for you. We want you to be encouraged, inspired and connected with other youth leaders from all over the UK and beyond. Hosted by some of the DTI team, we will be joined by Mike Pilavachi from Soul Survivor, Neil O’Boyle and Laura Hancock, and Matt Summerfield from Zeo church. This is a great place to be built up for the day ahead at DTI.
