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.

Outside of the main meetings we have a jam packed schedule, with sports, creative workshops, seminars, cafes, live music and inflatables! There's literally something for everyone!

Camping.

Sleeping in a tent with your friends for a week, what's not to love?!

Talks.

We hear from the Bible at every main meeting and learn how we can live it out in our every day lives.

Worship.

We love spending time in God's presence and telling Him how much we love Him. (we also like to get pretty loud)

Sports.

Whether it's football, volleyball, dodgeball or a fun run we've got you covered.

Café's.

Serving up the finest coffee and incredible cakes, there are a bunch of café's to choose from, so if you want to play board games or just chill out with your mates there's a place for you. (we also have phone charging points in all the café's)

Afterhours.

There is SO much going on every night, DJ's, gigs, talent shows, gameshows and so much more.

Seminars.

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.

Afternoon Activities.

We've got so much happening every afternoon!

The Station.

Get equipped and find out about some great organisations, or head over to the DTI Hub in the Station, where you can pick up some fresh DTI merch.

Please check the website and social media to see if day tickets are available to avoid disappointment. Youth groups are welcome to come along for the day, but we would ask that you adhere to the safeguarding ratio of 1 leader to 8 young people. If you are joining your youth group for the day you will need to be linked to your youth group on site. Your group must have who have adequate ratios of adults to young people (1:8). It is the responsibility of the day ticket holder (or their parent/guardian) to inform the relevant group leader that they will be joining them. On arrival all youth/ youth leaders joining for the day must be met at the gate by your churches youth leader.

Yes! We have cafes, food vans and an onsite shop where you will be able to buy drinks, snacks and some essentials. Most youth groups will cater for themselves throughout the week, and there are supermarkets nearby in Stafford if you need to pop out to get more supplies.
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.

The last evening meeting is on the 31st July with all our venues closing at 11.30pm. We’d love everyone to stay on site and leave the following morning 1st 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.

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.

If you're thinking of bringing your youth to DTI for the first time, we're offering a free call with one of the DTI team to chat through the logistics of bringing your group, you can sign up below.

"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"
