This brand-new fishing camp for boys and girls in Years 7 – 12 at school is located on the beautiful Hawkesbury River, near Wisemans Ferry.
There was plenty of great fishing and experienced leaders with boats who shared tips/tricks as well as introduced campers to Jesus, the great fisher of men!!
GENTS CAMP Father and Sons (27-29 Oct)
Father and Sons (8-13year olds), had the opportunity to get away & enjoy some riverside camping on private property near Wisemans Ferry with a group of others. They enjoyed great fun activities together, including archery tag, fishing, sports & sitting around the campfire sharing stories. The camp is specifically designed for dads & sons to have a great time together, which will include tools & key habits for building healthy relationships and enduring character back in the real world.
Inspire Art Camp (24-27 Sept)
Students in years 7-11 at school, explored a diverse range of visual art forms from the wide range of experienced leaders.
The campers had a great time together in the beautiful surroundings while they got creative, exploring various art forms and developing skills in a wonderful camp community. They also got to explore together some of the great things Jesus brings.
Bre 23 (13-22 April)
The Rivers Christian Convention is a gathering of Christian people, teaching, testifying, and encouraging one another in their walks with the Lord in small communities across NW NSW, Australia.
SU Australia is committing to supporting the convention by bringing Christian young people from the coast to the bush to experience life and culture in the Outback and to run Kid's Games for the children attending the convention and other interested young people.
Family Campout (2-5 March)
We camped on the banks of the beautiful Hawkesbury river, near Wisemans Ferry (there were onsite hot showers & toilets!), with family fun activities and campfires at night. Campers met other families at a similar age/stage and had the opportunity to share the joys and challenges of being a parent, & where to find inspiration & hope.
During the camp, Susy Lee, prize-winning author of 'Raising Kids Who Care,' helped get us talking with some family conversations about stuff that matters - relationship skills, how our culture affects us (think technology!), nurturing our inner selves and contributing to the world around us!
Teen Ranch Adventure Camp (10-14 January)
A crew of young people made the 7-hour trek from north-western NSW to attend Teen Ranch Adventure Camp in Cobbitty. The 5 days were jam-packed with activities in and out of the water, from horseriding and canoeing to archery and a giant slip & slide. The high schoolers had a wonderful time adventuring together with their local school chaplains from Baradine and Coonabarabran, Henry Halder and Narelle Pfeiffer, and SRE teacher Peter Volkofsky.
