If you have missed out please consider registering early next year for our 2016 camp


Promises of God! is our camp theme for 2015. We will be learning about the Promises of Presence and the Promises of Provision. We want to challenge ourselves to find out about what God’s promises for us actually are, and how we can use them in our everyday 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.

Saturday night will be a chance to travel back in time, to …. It’s in the Bag, CFFD! Come along prepared to participate, and to enjoy this fun evening together.

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 14th of March, at St Johns Presbyterian Church, 422 Mt Albert Road, Mt Roskill starting at 9 am and finishing at 12.30 pm. Regular helpers are also encouraged to attend. Please confirm attendance with Jean Griffiths on (09) 555 1947.

Children: This camp is for people of ALL ages, and therefore children with physical disabilities are more than welcome! We always have children at our camp and we will be running a children’s programme during the weekend to cater for them. 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.

Speaker: The speaker this year is Celia King. Celia is from Henderson, and is profoundly Deaf. She is a counsellor, a spiritual advisor and chaplain for the Deaf, and works as a resource teacher of the Deaf. Celia will be bringing her hearing dog Kiri who recently starred on the stage show Annie.
