Jesus Christ: The First and the Last

Due to popular demand this year, we have reached the number of campers we are able to have on camp. If you are interested in 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.

Senior Camp exists to give as many young people as possible a genuine encounter with Christ Jesus, encouraging and equipping them to serve Him wholeheartedly.

Senior Camp is for 14-20 years of age (or will complete year 8 in the December of camp) – whether you have known Jesus for a long time, a short time, have only heard about Him or know nothing about Him you’re welcome.

Register

Join 250 other young people from around South Australia in worship, teaching, small group discussions, CE-Ball, a camp concert and New Year’s Eve.

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 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

You don’t need to know everything about God before you start following Jesus. What is helpful is if you talk to God.

  • Thank God that your relationship with Him can be fixed because of Jesus. He went through a whole lot so that you can have eternal life.
  • Be honest. Tell God that you have made mistakes which have kept you far from him. Tell him that you’re
  • Ask God to help you change to be more like Jesus – to love God and love others.

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, as well as others around your age.

Who will I be in a small group with?

Small groups are made up of young people of your 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.

What can I expect to learn?

We hope you’ll learn more about a God who loves you.

We hope you’ll learn that God loves everyone.

We hope you’ll learn what it means to put that love into action.

What else does CE do?

If you’ve got young brothers or sisters tell them about Junior Camp (9-13 year olds).
