Make sure you have invited all your friends as well, that are teen age, because they will be most welcome to come and have a crazy time with us!
Please scroll down to read more about what you need to know BEFORE you get to Easter Camp.
It’s a place young people meet Jesus and it’s a place where young people are introduced to Him. This means it’s not just about you and your group - it’s about the kids in your community you are called to reach out to. Please encourage this ‘outward’ thinking amongst your young people.
The more excited YOU are about camp, the more your kids will be and faith levels will rise. Faith leads to action and works!
Start this journey now with your youth community. Have them think of someone they would like to bring and start praying - fervently! Nearer the time, have your young people pray specifically for camp.
...in Prayer, in Action and in Encouragement. We work hard to give you this weekend so that you can be with your young people. You won’t have to do the organising but don’t take the spectator seat because of this.
You are being served so you can serve.
We would love to remind you again of the vision and mission we have behind the running of this camp:
Absolutely crucial, purposeful God based relationships are the catalyst that ignite Easter Camp. Plan a late-night talent quest just for your community held in your own tent village. Why not programme special food and Milo times? What about a Pizza run to Hamilton by one of your leaders? (by permitted Youth leader only). Plan individual time with your young people over the course of camp.
Camp is the perfect environment to challenge your core youth to invite a friend along. One youth leader even found some money and gave a discount to every young person who invited a friend - it worked and what a great investment!
Local, Community, International. Mission is about lifestyle and God calls us all to be involved in different areas of mission in different ways. The mission of Easter Camp is not only local but also international and we want to expose young people to some things they may have never considered.
