Yurt Project

Two high dependency beds donated by Buckinghamshire Freemasons are part of the Action4Youth’s new Yurt Village at Caldecotte Xperience,

officially launched by His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent on 29th July 2015.

Located in Simpson, Milton Keynes the yurts have been constructed to increase the number of young people that can participate in residential stays and adventure activities at Caldecotte Xperience.

The yurts will be able to sleep up to 30 young people in bunk beds and has its own washroom and kitchen facilities, surrounding a central circular lounge room.

They also contain the high dependency beds and will provide extra residential rooms specifically to enable young people with multiple and complex needs to be able to participate in sports and outdoor experiences.

  • The Yurts are known as “Ger” in Mongolia, they consist of a circular trellis walled portable shelter. Yurts are traditional dwellings from central Asia that have been in use for hundreds if not thousands of years.

Deputy Provincial Grand Master Mike Stimson said “Bucks Freemasons are extremely pleased to be a part of this exciting new project and look forward to seeing it used to benefit young people throughout the Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire and surrounding areas”.
