Program Outline

The program for camp will be at a relaxed pace with plenty of free time each afternoon for families to rest and enjoy the campsite and its surroundings.

Activities planned for the week include:

  • Adventure Days out including a visit to Wow Illusions where things are not as they seem, and some fun rock scrambling on a scenic coastal walk
  • A dusk beach walk, spotlighting for possums and a Musty Dusty Ball (wear something from the back of your wardrobe!)
  • Water skiing/biscuiting, kayaking, giant tube, games and other beach actitivites

Each day a ‘Familytime’ is planned for after breakfast, where everyone joins in a variety of teaching, games and activities inclusive of all ages. We also have adults only discussions over food and beverages in the evenings, based around the same theme (when all the kids are in bed).  This year we will explore the book of Galatians.  The teens and younger adults also have some fun chaos planned each evening after the discussions.

This years theme is “Listening to God”

We will explore ways of listening to God, individually, with our families, in community to bless & benefit Banksia Grove and beyond. 

You will have the opportunity to pause and learn more about yourself and your family, faith/God, and the implications for community life in our Neighbourhood and beyond. You will also have a heap of fun and make some fantastic friends.
