What is Day Camp?

 Day Camp is a learning and adventure program run over 5 days 8.30am to 4pm during the June-July State School holidays (26th to 30th June 2023).  It is for primary school age children (grades 1-6) It involves adventure activities, games, singing, craft activities, gunyah making, challenge activities and sports. Day Camp is held at Karingal Scout Camp at Mt Cotton.

Day Camp is also a way young people can be introduced to the love God has for them, through the sense of community that comes from experiencing a camping environment and appreciating the wonder of God’s creation.

For leaders, Day Camp is a way of growing in faith and developing leadership skills through practical experience. Two to three leaders are placed with a small team of no more than 10 campers, allowing for the development of good relationships, a supportive environment, and a fun experience.

Please note: The number of children who can attend camp is in proportion to 1 leader to every 6 campers. So, the more leaders the more campers we can take.

Camper Registration opens on 1 June, so we need to have all the leaders registered before 1 June, so we know how many campers we can take.

  • All leaders are invited to the Leaders Pizza Party getting to know you on 16 June 6.30pm-8.30pm at Cleveland UC Hall. It is non-compulsory but helpful to attend.
