Where is my brochure?

We are taking positive steps to improve our sustainability both behind the scenes and on resort. There will be some noticeable differences. One of those is the brochure. We’ve decided not to print a full brochure as all the information is available on our website.

How can I help?

Can I volunteer?

Yes please! Every year our Spring Harvest family expands as a huge team of people in a variety of roles bring Spring Harvest to life. Spring Harvest’s remarkable army of volunteers benefit from free accommodation and meals, plus a contribution towards travel costs. Serving alongside the full-time team, you get to experience the ministry of Spring Harvest and know that you have made a difference as people worship, learn and laugh together. And there is always time off to experience the event!

There is also the opportunity of those booked as guests to join our Prayer team or to help in our Creative Studio.

Why not consider joining one of the teams where you can serve our guests and contribute to the life-changing ministry of Spring Harvest? Many volunteers build up lasting friendships and return year after year.

How can I support Spring Harvest?

There are many ways in which you can support Spring Harvest: through prayer, encouraging friends to attend, volunteering or giving financially. See below for more details.

Accommodation

Will there be Chalet TV in my accommodation?

We are keen to make sure those who want to are able to join in worship and teaching from their resort accommodation. You will be able to connect with any internet-connected device you bring with you.

We know that Chalet TV has been valued by some of our guests in the past, but we are no longer able to guarantee its availability due to the aging equipment it relies upon.

Can I book a caravan that’s already at Butlin’s?

Yes, you can book a privately owned caravan at Butlin's. You will then also need to book Day Visitor passes to access the Spring Harvest event.

Day Visitor information is on our Prices page.

Can I bring a touring caravan to Spring Harvest?

Butlin's have closed the touring caravan sites on their resorts so we are no longer able to take bookings for touring caravans. If you would like to come in your touring van you can book onto a local site and buy day visitor tickets for Spring Harvest. Please accept our apologies for any disappointment caused.

Can I request ground floor accommodation?

Yes, you can do this for an additional £15 charge.
Blue badge holders can be reimbursed this charge by calling Guest Services once on site at Butlin's.

Do Butlin’s have single accommodation?

A small amount of single accommodation is made available for one person to occupy at a supplement of £30 (however, this accommodation mostly sells out on the day booking lines open).

Do Butlin’s have disabled/adapted accommodation?

Yes, there is a limited amount on each site. Please phone Butlin’s Minehead on 0330 100 9332 or Skegness on 0330 100 9331 to check availability and book, as this can’t be booked online.

Please note that the fully adapted accommodation usually sells quickly, so we advise booking immediately on the day booking lines open to avoid disappointment.

Prices for Skegness & Minehead

Can we buy a dining package?

There are two Dining Packages available to Butlin's guests, Standard and Premium.
See our Prices page for details.

Dining Packages are not available to day visitors. Butlin's resorts offer a range of other dining experiences, including restaurants and take-away options, which are available for all Spring Harvest guests, including day visitors. See the Butlin's website for details.

How can I book day visitor tickets?

Please visit our Prices Page and scroll to the bottom, for information about our Day Visitor tickets.

Do I have to pay in full at time of booking, and if not, when is full payment due?

You only need to pay an initial deposit of £35 per adult and £20 per child aged two to 14 unless booking within 70 days of the start, as that’s when you’ll need to pay in full. Butlin’s are happy for you to spread the cost throughout the year. If you booked online log into your Butlin's account to pay in installments or visit www.butlins.com/pay to pay towards your booking any time before final payment is due.

How are the accommodation costs calculated?

Butlin's charge for accommodation units as if all beds are occupied. Any beds not used in your accommodation will be charged at the adult price minus £20 (called 'the under occupancy rate'). Children age 2-14 are charged at the adult price minus £20. Under 2's go free when in a cot rather than a bed.

Our Church includes a family of asylum seekers and another on a very low income. Can you help them to come?
