Day Camp 2019: 1-5 July 2019
What is Day Camp?
Day Camp is a learning and adventure program run over 5 days during the September school holidays. It is for primary school age children (grades 1-6) as well as those in middle school (grade 7-8). It involves adventure games, singing, craft activities, gunyah making, challenge activities and sports. Buses take campers to and from the site each day, with pickup locations around the Redlands, so you get all the fun of camping during the day while still sleeping in your own bed each night!
Day Camp is a way young people can be introduced to the love God has for them, the sense of community that comes from living in a camping environment, and a way they can appreciate the wonder of God’s creation.
Day Camp has been running for over 40 years and is only made possible by the efforts of a large number of volunteers. There are a number of ways that you ca help, leading on a team of kids, running adventure activities, leading music, devotions, craft or cooking, even loading kids on to buses. There is no cost involved for leaders and volunteers and leaders can serve for all or part of the week. So if you are in grade 9 and over and looking for a way to serve kids and families in your community, we would love to hear from you.
All adult leaders will need to hold a current Blue Card, these are free for volunteers and we can help you apply for one.
