Our purpose is to provide high quality holidays and activities for all ages within the framework of traditional Christian family values and standards.

Min Y Don is a inter-denominational Christian outdoor adventure centre and we welcome groups, families and individuals of any faith or background. For family holidays a simple epilogue is held each evening in the lounge and this usually comprises of a song, one of our famous sketches, Bible reading and a short talk.
We place no pressure whatsoever on our guests to accept the Christian viewpoint.
