The team is led by Dan and Billie Thaw, who established The Oakes in the late 90’s. Dan and Billie are both trained as PE teachers and have had many years experience of Christian work with children and young people, including Spring Harvest, The Keswick Convention and summer camps in the UK and abroad.
Here’s our current crop of young, enthusiastic youth workers who make our camps possible. From running games to leading Bible studies (and simply being fun to be around) they are often the highlight of the camp for the campers. For more info about what’s involved check out our Join the Team page.
Our wonderful trustees are Martin Bell, Anthony Fisher, Paul German, Jo Hopkins and Dan Thaw.
