If you have been at a camp before you will know the general run of the program of our camps.

We gather in the mornings and divide into age groups after morning tea.

Our camp sessions are generally led by the ministers at the camp.

In the late afternoons, there are optional sessions which anyone can offer and lead.

We usually have the middle day – Thursday – of camp as the outing day and offer a choice of things to do.

Onsite or offsite activities are available in the afternoons and we offer a range of activities in the evenings.

Each day begins and ends with a time of devotion.

There is free time to mix and mingle with each other.

A Camp Book is sent out to people who are coming, about a month before the start of the camp. All the essential information is given in the Camp Booklet, but we can also answer your questions if you contact us.
