    I did it last year so I can answer any questions about it. I highly recommend doing it though- it develops a lot of useful skills like teamwork, leadership and, most of all, it will help you meet more people (=more followers!) and partake in fun activities.

    It depends on the size of the group, the amount of people your gender and the size of the dorm where you're staying.

    For instance, when I did it there were 7 boys, including me so we were all in the same dorm. There were far more girls so they were split up into groups that I cannot remember the sizes of.

    You got dorms? I did the interfaith programme last year and we got stuck in tents. 10/10 would recommend though, the whole thing was great fun.

    I'd have enjoyed being a tent. My inner scout makes me love camping.

    It really depends on where you go. My friends went to somewhere in Dorset and they said that around 8 people shared a room (there are bunk beds and nothing else in the rooms) but my group went to Devon and it was 12 or slightly more in a room. There were quite a few rooms as well.

    The interfaith program is run by a youth group called JLGB. It is run much later in the summer and has halal and kosher catering + space for prayer. There were people from all walks of life taking it and we all intermingled. Surprisingly the majority of the people on the program that I spoke to said that they identified as atheist.
