Due to popular demand this year, we have reached the number of children we are able to have on camp. If you are interested in your child coming to camp, please fill out the waiting list form and you will be contacted in the event that a spot opens up, as some do each year.

Junior CE Camp is for 9 – 13 year olds (those who have completed year 7 in the December prior to camp) – whether you have known Jesus for a long time, a short time, have only heard about Him or know nothing about Him you are most welcome!

Waiting List

Camps starts Friday 5th January (11am) and finishes Tuesday 9th January (2pm) at Cornerstone College, Mount Barker.

When you come along you’ll join around 120 other young people in games, craft, sport, worship, teaching, small group discussion and a camp concert.

What to expect

Don’t know anyone on camp? Don’t worry, you won’t be the only one! Campers come from churches or youth groups all over South Australia and usually only know a couple of people on camp.

Dorms and small group time are a great chance to get to know people your own age.

Small groups share breakfast, lunch and tea together because no one likes to eat on their own.

There are also lots of activities – crafts, sport, Mission Night, Up late with God – to get involved in and meet friends outside of your small group.

Still worried about heading on camp alone? Your leader will keep an eye out for you. Let them know if you’re finding it tricky.

A day in the life of camp

Follow Jesus

A shepherd’s job is to make sure their flock has enough food and water, somewhere safe to sleep at night, and protect them from animals that might hurt them.

Find our about Cecil the sheep and how he is lucky that his shepherd is good at his job.

FAQ

I’m interested in Jesus, but not sure I believe in Him. Can I come on camp?

Definitely! You’re welcome no matter what you believe, plus camp is a great place to find out more about Jesus.

Where will I be sleeping?

You’ll be sleeping on the floor in classrooms so make sure you bring a comfy, single mattress! You’ll be sharing the space with the people in your small group of the same gender.

Who will I be in a small group with?

Small groups are made up of young people of your gender and age.

Familiar faces help you feel comfortable. On your camp form you can let us know who you’d like to be in group with, and we’ll do our best to make this happen.

Can I make phone calls?

If you need to make a phone call, please report to Admin. Family can contact the Camp Admin on the number provided on the registration form.

We hope you’ll learn that God loves everyone.
