Jindabyne, here we come!
Once again, Young Life Australia will travel to Jindabyne, the gateway to Kosciuszko National Park for Summer Camp.
The seven-day camp for youth in grades 9 to 12 will be held from January 13 – 19 in 2019.
“It’s an incredible way to start the year,” says Glyn Henman, CEO of the non-denominational Christian youth organisation.
“For campers it’s a chance to try water skiing, abseiling, mountain-biking and to climb to the top of Australia and what better time to try new things than at the start of a New Year.”
“It’s a great place to unplug – for teenagers to be able to relax and think about life, in between the fun and extreme activitites.”
Young Life has been bringing teenagers to Jindabyne for 20 years.
“A lot of our campers have never experienced water sport or abseiling before.”
“They are unforgettable experiences – especially when you are stepping outside of your comfort zone for the first time,” says Glyn.
“But most of the feedback from campers is about the friendships they make and our great youth leaders and Summer Staff team who donate their time to make camp great.”
“The volunteers donate a week – weeks when you count the preparation – and their skills as activity coordinators, program creatives and cabin leaders.”
“They come to make camp special for the youth who climb off those buses in Jindabyne not knowing what to expect.”
During school terms, Young Life Australia runs community-based youth clubs, camps and activities for high school students.
The cost of attending Summer Camp is $570 including accommodation, food and all the activities. There is an additional cost for transport depending from where you are travelling.
