Did someone say LEGO!?

As we are now past the halfway mark of the year, Senior Camp 2014/2015 is now distantly visible on the horizon. Planning is well underway, and we are excited to see how God will work on camp this year.

Camp dates will remain the same this year, camp running from December 29th – Jan 2nd, and day zero for leaders being on December 28th. It would warm our hearts if you could slap those dates in the diary now!

The camp theme will soon be revealed. It involves Lego.

If you would like to receive promotional material via snail mail, but you have moved house since you last came on camp, please send us your updated postal address.

For leaders, we will be offering Child Safe training later in the year, stay tuned for dates. Note that Junior Camp has changed their dates to start a day later than normal and now runs January 5-9 so that leaders can volunteer on both camps.

If you love Senior Camp and have younger brothers and sisters you might want to get them to check out Junior Camp.

CE camp has inherited a great vision from those who have gone before us, and again we invite you take part in this fantastic work under God: “To give as many young people as possible a genuine encounter with Christ Jesus, encouraging and equipping them to serve Him wholeheartedly”.We would love to see you there again this year, and hope you can encourage others to come with you. As always, we are keen have new people join the CE community, and we have capacity this year to do that.

That’s it for now. Please do pray for camp in the upcoming months, that as preparations are made and campers are invited, that many would come, and that God would again do great works in many lives as we meet in the name of Jesus.

In Him,

Cam Maxwell, on behalf of the Senior Camp Committee

Pack your cape for Junior Camp!

Camper Form - Front (Small)Want to be a superhero on Jesus’ team? Find out how on Junior Camp in 2015. We’ll explore the superheroes of the bible – from the bravest to the most unlikely. There will be plenty of fun on camp with tons to do including sport, craft, drama and a great speaker called Steve Stokes. He’s really funny and tells great stories!

Camp goes from January 5-9 2015 at Cornerstone College in Mt. Barker. If you’re a kid aged between 9 and 13 then we’d love to see you there! (And if you have older brothers or sisters you might want to tell them about Senior Camp)

We are searching for leaders to be musicians, elective and sport coordinators, drama members and  small group leaders of aspiring superheroes and super-heroines (kids) for the week. If you are a children’s ministry leader or interested in children’s ministry, and 18 or over, then we invite you to prayerfully consider being a part of the 2015 CE-SU  Junior Camp Team.

Important dates for leaders

–        6 December for training, Rostrevor Baptist Church

–        4-9 January for camp, Cornerstone College, Mount Barker
