Senior CE Camp is organised by a team of Christians from a diverse range of background from throughout South Australia. This team works together to ensure that camp runs smoothly and safely.
Your child will join other young people in worship, teaching, workshops, small group discussions, and activities.
Camp is held between Christmas and New Years January each year at Cornerstone College, Mount Barker.
Volunteers go through a thorough screening and selection process to ensure that they are suitable and are expected to attend training in Early December. Find out more about the process in the FAQ section for Volunteers.
Please email with registration enquiries.

Answers to common questions for parents of Senior Campers.
What extra safety precautions will be taken in light of Covid-19?
All organised activities will allow for social distancing requirements, including meal times and sleeping arrangements.
Cleaning will also be stepped up, with deep cleans happening before, during and after all camps this year.
Plenty of hand sanitiser will be available and camp culture will include proper hand hygiene.
What happens if CE Camp sells out?
If the camp that your child desires to attend is already at maximum capacity, they can register to join the waiting list (you will only need to pay when your child is accepted on camp).
In the eventuality that restrictions are loosened or a place becomes available, we will appropriately extend the numbers we can take this year and begin accepting campers from the top of the waiting list.
What happens if CE Camp 2020/21 is cancelled?
We recognise this year has been challenging and there is the possibility that restrictions will become tighter. In the case where we are forced to cancel CE Camp this year, all campers will be refunded in full. That being said, we are praying fervently against this!
Where are volunteers from?
Volunteers come from over 40 churches from around South Australia.
What training, experiences and checks do volunteers go through to work with my child?
All volunteers show an active involvement in a local Church community. We use a detailed leadership application form requiring two referees. This informs us of their experience and helps us gauge their suitability for camp.
Your child’s safety is important to us, which is why volunteers who have contact with children or young people through CE programs to have a Working with Children Check.
All volunteers complete Safe Environments Training.
What will my child be doing on camp each day?
View the page about what to expect, and a day in the life of camp.
How is my child cared for on camp?
Our care for your child starts before they arrive by asking them which friends they’d like to be in a small group with. Maintaining a welcoming and caring culture is something we are passionate and proud about at CE. Before Camp even begins our leaders are praying for your child, and we aim to place your child in a small group with at least one person they know. Being in the same group as one of their friends helps them feel comfortable and safe, but also enables them to get to know other people their age.
Your child’s Small Group Leader is their main support during camp. Small Groups spend a lot of time together – meal times, discussion time and some activities. We aim for 1 leader for every 3 campers. This means their leader gets to know them well and are nearby if your child needs them.
Leaders are supported by the Volunteer Manager and Camp Director.
Can you accommodate children with special needs?
CE hopes to be as inclusive as we can with all potential campers.
Please contact the Senior Camp Director as early as possible to see how we might accommodate your child’s particular needs.
My child has to take medication each day. How is this managed?
All medications are collected at the start of camp and the distribution of medication is supervised by a First Aid Officer.
What if my child gets sick or injured on camp?
There is a first aid officer who will care for your child if they get sick. They are supported by other volunteers with First Aid Training for Schools and Centres.
In the event of an emergency we will contact you and follow the procedure as stated on the consent form.
How do I reach my child if I need to contact them in an emergency?
While campers are allowed to bring their phones on camp, they are only able to access them for one hour each afternoon. This is to help them connect with God and the people around them.
In the event of an emergency, please use the number provided on the camp registration form to contact camp Administration.
Will volunteers contact my child after camp?
CE will only contact your child if you’ve said we can when you register.
We’d love to be able to keep your child up to date about future camps and other news and events.
If it’s ok with you, we’d also like to be able to help your child follow Jesus throughout the year.
Please contact us if you have any questions about volunteers contacting your child.
Oh dear! Have we missed something?
