The fruit of this fantastic ministry for campers is authentic positive relationships, a safe, fun and joyful time, the opportunity to explore God’s creation, a place of acceptance and belonging, an environment to explore/share/listen to God’s good news.

I think the talks on camp this year have shown me that being a Christian has challenges but it is so worth it to know God and be a daughter of the King. It has convinced me to become a Christian. (Repeat Camper)

Our Leaders are impacted through camps by growing their reliance and trust in God, being a role model, creating a Christian community, growing in their skills in Christian leadership, speaking and living the Gospel, practicing love and patience, living life to the full.

It was my first time being involved with SU and I feel incredibly honoured in the opportunity to encourage and speak life over the kids during the week. It was such a privilege!

The girls in my tent group were all from Christian families but one of them decided to give her life to Jesus on camp- I felt super honoured to coach her through that and pray with her. I got to write a message in each of their bibles too. It’s been very, very busy but incredibly rewarding week. Praying that God continues to make himself real in these kids lives. He is so good! (GE3 Leader)

These stories are a great reminder of the reason God has called us to this work. From budgets to applications, meetings to risk management, it’s all for the glory of God and seeing Him work through our camps.

This year has seen some good growth in Holiday Camps Ministry: 26 camps ran over the 12 months, 4 up on last year, despite 2 that could not run.

We started 4 new camps (Gents, Sports United, Glen Echo 3 and Licorice Allsorts) and have established a solid foundation for our Breakaway Camps with 5 running in the last 12 months. Overall there has been an increase in the number of volunteers for camps with 22% of volunteers new to SU WA. We have a high retention of team leaders each year providing a great environment for training and discipleship of team members. This has resulted in our 30% of new team leaders being prepared and supported.

We’re half way through 2017 and God is sustaining and blessing School Camping ministry. With a plateau of new bookings in 2016 /17 limiting ministry opportunities, it’s been really encouraging that the outcomes from current School Camping programs have been so remarkable!! The feedback we are receiving from Schools regarding our volunteers, professionalism, and ministry outcomes has been overwhelmingly positive. Our teams are sharing stories like these:

“On night 3 in our small group we started talking about how to enter the Kingdom of God, and kids got saved!” Team Leader

“I didn’t really know when I’d be able to talk about God with the kids before camp, so I prayed – there were so many opportunities to mention God and His creation, and they asked lots of questions.” SU Intern

SU’s School Camping is healthy, strong and effective; but we need your help to spread the word to more schools, teachers, and principals; and please continue to pray for more opportunities for the School Camping Ministry.

Camp Geo’s Upgrades See Fruit

Volunteers aged from 5 to 75 joined together in the last week of April at Camp Geographe. Teams were formed and the weather remained fine and sunny. Old bunks, new bunks and miscellaneous items covered the lawns surrounding the cabins as the floor work was undertaken with enthusiasm.

Teenagers from Cornerstone Christian College assisted, doing heavy lifting, cooking, dishwashing and being available wherever needed.

Morning tea was followed by daily prayer, with Mobile Mission Maintenance sharing prayer needs and information on their ministry around the world. “This will be the highlight of our safari tour,” one MMM volunteer said.

Ministry and bookings have increased over the last five years as we improve the grounds and facilities here. SU is now making full use of all school holiday periods for Holiday and Breakaway camps. Praise God for the provision of this beautiful place, for funds to improve it and for the ministry that happens here!
