Registrations from 6pm on the Friday night. Camp will finish around 2pm on Sunday afternoon after lunch and packup. Please do not turn up to camp before 5:30pm if you are a general camper.

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God is our camp theme for 2017. We will be learning about what it means to put God first in our lives and what it means to seek first the Kingdom of God.

We will have our usual fun Saturday afternoon activities, as well as a chance to simply rest and relax. One of our afternoon activities this year is Christian karaoke so if you’ve always wanted to be a star you will be able to do that at camp.

Helpers: For those who are coming as helpers, we welcome you with open arms! There will be time set aside on Friday evening to train you how to help your buddies. You will be fully supported all weekend by your cabin leader, the camp committee and an on-site nurse. We cannot stress enough how much we value and need our helpers.
During this one weekend many lives will be changed – but it cannot be done without you. You will be the difference to this camp!
We do ask that first time helpers complete a police check form to protect our more vulnerable campers.

For those with a disability you will be paired with a buddy and have their support for the weekend.

Children and Teenagers: This camp is for people of ALL ages, and therefore children with physical disabilities are more than welcome! We will be running a children’s programme during the weekend. Please note that we will carefully select buddies who will work with children. There will be late nights, with an afternoon sleep on the Saturday. You are welcome to come as a family, and we ask that you please call Jean Griffiths on (09) 555 1947 to discuss this.

Speaker: Timothy Lee, formerly Pastor of Rotorua Baptist Church, will be sharing with us this weekend. As a result of a mountain bike accident, Tim is now a tetraplegic and continues to be very active in ministry. We are looking forward to what he has to say to us during the weekend.

Who we are: Christian Fellowship for Disabled (CFFD) is one of five ministries under the umbrella of Elevate Christian Disability Trust (Previously Christian Ministries with Disabled Trust). Our aim as a ministry is Equip, Educate and Evangelise. We do this through our camp, regular meetings (picnics, dinners etc.) and seminars in Churches. Elevate publishes a magazine called ‘The Encourager’ quarterly, and also runs a free drop in centre in Onehunga for three days a week during the school term.

If you have registered for camp we look forward to seeing you at camp.

Surrender
Surrender is our camp theme for 2016. We will be learning about surrendering and what that means in our lives.

We will have our usual fun Saturday afternoon activities that will suit everyone, as well as a chance to just simply rest and relax. One of our afternoon activities this year is tie dye. If you would like to dye a t-shirt please bring a light or white t-shirt to camp.

First time campers: We welcome campers coming along for the first time. For those who are coming as helpers, we welcome you with open arms! There will be a short seminar on Friday evening teaching you how to help, and you will be fully supported all weekend by your buddy, your cabin leader, and the camp committee. We even have an on-site nurse to assist. We cannot stress enough how much we value and need our helpers. During this one weekend many lives will be changed – but it cannot be done without you. You will be the difference to this camp! We do ask that first time helpers complete a police check form to protect our more vulnerable campers.

Pre-Camp Training for ALL helpers: We run a morning seminar specifically for our new helpers, on Saturday the 19th of March, at Elevate Christian Disability Trust 173 Mount Smart Road, Onehunga starting at 9 am and finishing at 12.30 pm.

Children and Teenagers: This camp is for people of ALL ages, and therefore children with physical disabilities are more than welcome!

As we are expecting a few Teenagers at camp this year there will also be afternoon activities specifically for this age group. Please note that we will be carefully selecting the buddies who will work with the children. There will be late nights, with an afternoon sleep on the Saturday. If you have a son or daughter who would like to come with their brother or sister, but does not have a disability, we would ask that you send a family member along to look after that child as we do not have the resources available to look after non-disabled children. You are welcome to come as a family, and we ask that you please call Jean Griffiths on (09) 555 1947 to discuss this.
