Youth team

Feedback from the 2021 team of animateurs:

"I learnt so much about myself and others in praying and planning, through serving the youth and guests."

"So many great God moments with the teenagers."

"I have definitely been taken out of my comfort zone and into my learning zone."

"I have grown as a result. It's been great being immersed in the European languages, culture and style."

"Serving on team has been fun, full of variety and with great people."

"I feel I've been in at the deep end but I have been supported and I feel more confident to do it again."

"It is great to be in a team working with people who are committed to giving their best."

"I feel I can be authentic and not perfect and I'm helped to grow."

"God used me to relate and connect with the teenagers."

"I've been hugely blessed, I love the accommodation, staff village and the food."


Teenagers love their LPO holidays and pester their parents to come back again and again. They love the freedom, the friendships and the activities. For many, they make leaps forward in their Christian faith. It is the role of our volunteer youth team to create the fun, the energy, the passion and the brilliant communication.

Our youth team members are dedicated, passionate and gifted. They serve wholeheartedly and the teenagers love it! Youth team volunteers also benefit from regular sessions with our invited speakers and worship leaders because our aim is that they will be challenged and grow in their faith during their time at Le Pas Opton.

Applications are now open to serve for the 2022 season. Click here to apply.

We realise that most of our youth team will be students which means it may be financially difficult to give your time free for a whole summer. So we've set up a sponsorship fund which will provide a lump sum payment to volunteers who serve on site for four weeks or more. Successful applicants will receive the sterling equivalent of €150 for each week served.
