About Skeet Hill House

Skeet House

Skeet Hill House (Skeet)

Skeet is a Jewish youth activity centre situated on 7 acres of land in the beautiful greenbelt countryside of Kent. It is just 3 miles from Junction 4 of the M25. It was originally purchased for the Brady Boys' Club in 1943 by the Jewish Youth Fund as a place of respite from the difficulties of life in the war-torn East End of London.

Skeet has been used by every generation of Jewish young people since opening over 70 years ago. It is now the only fully kosher residence for use by Jewish organisations for young people in the UK. Skeet is a true communal asset, catering for children from across the Jewish spectrum - from the most liberal to Charedi communities.

The house, parts of which date back more than 400 years, can now sleep over 70 people with a further 5 places in a specially equipped unit for young people with more severe physical disabilities.

Skeet is booked up for most weekends throughout the year and during the school holidays. Between 2,000 and 2,500 Jewish children from Jewish primary & secondary schools and youth clubs aged 6-16 visit each year.
