You have been chosen, called and crowned with His royalty. Your purpose is not just to sit and enjoy his marvellous treasures, but rise in the confidence of whose you are and what you have been entrusted with. It is for Kingdom sake that you have been given gifts, talents and unique passions. You are His very own – now stand! Your surroundings need your declaration that you are called for such a time as this, a life established to be set apart.
"But you are God’s chosen treasure—priests who are kings, a spiritual “nation” set apart as God’s devoted ones. He called you out of darkness to experience his marvellous light, and now he claims you as his very own. He did this so that you would broadcast his glorious wonders throughout the world. For at one time you were not God’s people, but now you are. At one time you knew nothing of God’s mercy, because you hadn’t received it yet, but now you are drenched with it!"
- 1 Peter 2:9-10 (TPT)

Merch sales of camp tee's will also be onsite for sale.
Food & Catering
We provide a basic Vegan meal option – we encourage you to provide extra food where possible
We have a full in house catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
This year we ask that each young person brings their own plates, bowls and cutlery sets.
Although we do not offer any substantial meals for sale outside of our usual catering, we do have a tuckshop on site open during all break and extended hangout times. This tuckshop is stacked with drinks and snacks if any young person would like to make a purchase.
We provide cabins for all those attending our Summercamp. The cabins have two locations, each at opposite ends of the camp site. Boys are located at one end, and girls are located at the other.
We will do our best to ensure each young person has the opportunity to buddy with at least one of their friends, but please remember we are at maximum capacity and ask that you extend flexibility during this cabin arrangement process.
We also ask that each child is considerate of others when it comes to sleeping time. Summercamp has very full days that require energy and attention. Lights out, mean lights out and time for sleep.
Please note that our services are fully equipped with festival grade lighting and sound. If your child is prone to seizures or sensitive to flashing lights – please contact our team immediately.
We have opportunities throughout our services that allow young people to respond to various altar calls and prayer needs. As a team, we are not trained or qualified counsellors, and recommend if there are ongoing life controlling issues that they are passed into the care of a professional counsellor.
