What’s Summer Camp?
Summer Camp is for High School students who will be in Years 9 to 12 in 2019 and for seven days, we will be having the absolute time of our lives!
We spend time waterskiing, tubing, hiking, rock climbing and abseiling – every year we see young people try things they’ve never done before, overcome fears and push themselves to another level!
Every year a different theme is invented for the camp program, and crazy games and challenges are woven into the day, and takes centre stage at the Club Nights. We never know what will happen next!
Every night of Camp we have Club, with games, music, and a talk that challenges us to take a deeper look at what life is all about from a Christian perspective. Campers have the opportunity to share and ask questions in a discussion with their Cabin Leader afterwards.
By the end we’re exhausted… but we never want to leave!
Where is Summer Camp?
Summer Camp is held in Jindabyne in the Snowy Mountain region of NSW, two hours south of Canberra, close to Kosciusko National Park and the Victorian border. It’s approximately 7min drive from the township with the entrance on Snowy River Way, 100m from the main road, Barry Way.
The campsite, The Station, is a ski resort in the winter months which makes for a very well-equipped, fun and functional campsite in summer.
Who looks after the campers?
Campers are predominately looked after by experienced Young Life volunteer leaders who serve in local areas. Cabin Leaders are in turn looked after by Head Cabin Leaders with several years experience.
All activities, and overall camp coordination, is supervised by Summer Staff. Meals, cleaning and many other needs are overseen by the camp Work Crew.
The bulk of these individuals are Young Life volunteers who are trained, and give up an entire week to make Camp a great experience for the campers – we’re so grateful to them!
How much does camp cost?
The Camp Fee is $570 and travel is an additional cost depending on the Young Life area from where you depart. Please make contact with your area manager or call the National office on 1300 557 647 to confirm.
