Cae Canol Centre is a registered charity run by a team of Trustees who between them have extensive experience of running weekends away and summer camps for their own groups at a variety of venues around England and Wales. Cae Canol is entirely run by volunteers who have taken on the responsibility for managing and maintaining the centre.
Cae Canol seeks to be:
Cae Canol is a converted farm house containing well equipped accommodation along with meeting and dining rooms. There is also also a detached games room in a converted barn. During March to October there is overflow accommodation available in a separate caravan and also a self contained log cabin. The main house has wifi available for guests to use.
The eight acres of grounds have a barbecue and picnic area, space for games, a network of paths to explore, plenty of scope for wide games and for those with a good imagination, a pirate's den and bear's cave to find.

For the 60th anniversary of Crusaders in 1966, an appeal was launched to buy a residential centre in the North of England similar to Crusader's existing centre, Westbrook, on the Isle of Wight. However God's plans were somewhat different and Cae Canol Crusader Centre in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales was opened in 1969.
A new independent charity was formed in 2006 to take on the running of Cae Canol Centre primarily for the benefit of Crusader / Urban Saints groups and other similar church groups.
