We turn 35 this year and we've got a whole host of ways for you to come and get involved in the action. Whether you've been to CYE all your life or this is the first you've heard of us; you're very welcome. Whether you're an outdoor activity enthusiast or a novice; we've got something for you. Across the events we'll be running some raffles with great prizes, a CYE 'Charity Shop' and an interactive exhibition for you to make your mark on too. All of these events will be raising money for the work of CYE and towards our new build project.
There's a coffee afternoon, quiz night in February, a sponsored cycle ride AND our big birthday bash in May. Read more below and book now!
Friday 28th February
Ever lost a summer camp quiz because ‘the camper’s come first’? Or because you didn't know all the capital countries in the world? Now’s your chance to put all your general and random knowledge on the table, bring out your weird and wonderful talents and show the world how many marshmallows you really can fit in your mouth. Welcome to Quiz Night with all the CYE twists.
Book a table and fill it with your chosen team, or, book individually and we'll put you into a team. Tables of 6 - 8. £8 per person. We'll provide the nibbles and soft drinks but you can bring your own drinks to aide your grey cells if you wish. We'll also be drawing the winners of the CYE 35th Raffle part 1 on this evening, you'll be able to buy tickets on the night or in advance (£2 per ticket).
Boat to Boat Sponsored Cycle
Saturday 30th May
The 2020 CYE Boat to Boat Sponsored Cycle will take you on an impressive journey from river to coast, covering over 70 miles.
Starting at the Gerald Daniel, CYE's first residential barge which now sits on the River Thames, you'll cycle through London, Surrey, the South Downs and West Sussex to reach CYE's current vessel, T S Resolute, moored in Chidham, Chichester Harbour.
Riders can stay onboard Resolute (at CYE, Chidham) on Friday evening if they wish to then transfer up to London Victoria Station for 7 am (or meet us there) where you'll make the short (1.5 mile) ride to the Gerald Daniel start line. There'll be a support vehicle on hand, each group will have a ride guide for directions, and your cycle will finish at CYE's 35th Birthday Bash meaning plenty of well wishers to cheer your arrival, and a custom made medal! There'll be showering and changing facilities at the finish line for you to then join the Birthday Bash (at no extra charge). We are asking all riders to raise £350 for their ride, your £35 deposit secures your place. We will keep in contact with more details from us and requesting more information from you (e.g. estimated 25 mile ride time)
THE BIG BIRTHDAY BASH
Saturday 30th May
10 am - 10 pm
We would love to celebrate our birthday with old friends and new so we invite you and your nearest and dearest to join us for a fun packed, activity filled, cake fuelled day of CYE-ness! There'll be fete stands and stalls, dance and circus skills workshops, games for all plus water and land activity sessions for all ages. We'll be having an all together celebration event in the afternoon and evening with live music, performances, stories and games. Plus be part the finish line for the CYE 'Boat to Boat' riders who'll have cycled from the Gerald Daniel (our old ship) on the River Thames, all the way to CYE. So blow up a balloon, put on your party hat, write us a card and come and celebrate!
