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.

"Last year at DTI I met with the Holy Spirit and felt healing in my sore knees, I was just there in worship and felt a burst of energy come through my body. I’ve never had pain in my knees since."

"I brought a small group of young people from our church, I have seen each of them have authentic encounters with Jesus."

"I ended up giving my life to Jesus and I can't wait to see what He has in store for me"

"Our youth group has come away feeling like one big family, Dreaming the Impossible is the highlight of our year"

YOUTH LEADERS

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.

SEMINARS

Throughout the week, we're going to be diving deeper in to some big topics through seminars.

ACADEMY STREAM

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!

DNA STREAM

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.

FIT STREAM

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. 

SEMINAR SPEAKERS

Please check the website and social media to see if day tickets are available to avoid disappointment. Each day visitor will need to be linked to a youth group on site, who have adequate ratios of adults to young people.

6. Can I bring my children if they are younger than 12?
Yes! DTI is first and foremost a youth gathering, however we appreciate the some Youth Leaders and team will need to bring their kids. The Dream Kids team have an action packed schedule for your 0-11's each morning. In the evening there will be a film for the 5-7's and an evening meeting for 8-11's.There are a limited number of Kids tickets available so make sure you book your to avoid missing out.

DTI begins on 30 July with our first meeting at approx 7pm that evening (time TBC), the site will be open from midday for you to arrive and get your campsite set up. The last evening meeting is on the 3rd August with all our venues closing at 11.30pm. We’d love everyone to stay on site and leave the following morning 04 August. The site needs vacating by 9:30am.

8. Is DTI accessible for young people with additional needs?
Yes! DTI aims to be as inclusive as possible to all young people. We will have BSL and hearing loops in the main meeting, and a team on hand to help young people get the most out of the meetings. We will live stream the meetings into a smaller venue so any young people who would engage more in that environment can still be a part of all that is going on. In order to help our team help your young people, please provide us with as much detail as possible on their ticket and a member of our team will be in contact to see how best we can support them at DTI.
