We can remember wanting to be part of something bigger than ourselves, something that was fun, adventurous and crazy. For almost 5000 teenagers and young adults from the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Auckland and the far North regions, Easter Camp is that place.
Northern Easter Camp happens annually at Mystery Creek Events Centre in Hamilton. Camp is packed full of worship, world-class Christian communicators, concerts, sports competitions, seminars, creative arts, talent quests and many other fun and engaging activities. Why do we do this? Because there are many teenagers in our society who feel misunderstood and confused about many of the issues they face in life. At camp, we want to create a space where young people can belong to a community, through a local youth community. Together, young people can learn about the issues they face and challenges they will come across in life. In challenging these young people mentally, physically, spiritually and socially we hope to provide them with tools for the teenage years and beyond!.
The sights, smells, colours and movement. Mind blowing! It would be like a child let loose in a candy store or standing at the base of a lofty maunga comparing how small you are in its shadow. Like hearing your first live show or seeing colour for the first time.
We are creatures of wonder. Easter Camp invites you to come on this curious, awe-filled journey and be captivated again by the most wonder-fully powerful story in the world.
