What you should know:
Come and join us for our God’s Armour camp this Summer at Holyground!
We are planning an action packed programme of water sports, games, fun, great food, friends, singing and learning together. Don't miss out - spaces are limited!
What should you bring to camp?
- Old clothes including something warm
- Old closed-in shoes (for health and safety in the kitchen and in the bush)
- Footwear to protect your feet while on the beach
- Sleeping bag or blankets, sheet, pillow
- Sunhat, togs and towel – modest sun-smart swimwear essential. Please bring a shirt/shorts.
- Personal toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste), any required medication (with instructions for use)
- Bible if you have one
- Baking for the kitchen
Please label your stuff - it makes it much easier to work out whose is whose if things get mixed up!! Please leave behind phones/electronic devices/money/junk food/ valuables/girlfriends/
While we attempt to cater for a basic range of dietary needs, it is very helpful if campers with particularly restrictive requirements are able to support our hard-working cooks by supplying some of their own food. Please indicate any dietary needs at registration, and if these are complex we will give you a call to discuss the planned menu.
Need a ride?If you are unable to transport your child to/from camp, our volunteers may be able to pick up /drop off a limited number of campers from within Whangarei city. Please indicate on the registration form if you need transport, and be ready at the address provided from 2.30pm. Please advise us if no longer needing a ride to save a wasted trip.
Visiting? Parents are welcome to visit during camp. Please introduce yourself to a leader on arrival and sign the visitors book. Please let us know if there is anyone we need to be aware of who specifically is not allowed to visit your child.
Rules: We need your help to make our camp a friendly and safe ‘haven’ that’s fun for all of us!!! At camp we aim for there to be no swearing, bullying, fighting, name-calling, threatening, stealing or lying. Please leave bad attitudes, expensive or electronic equipment (phones, ipads, electronic games, cameras), money, and junk food all at home – we can’t take responsibility for them if they go missing. You will survive without them for a few days! Also, while it goes without saying, please don't bring knives or weapons, drugs, alcohol or cigarettes of any sort to camp.
Parents, please encourage your child to speak with a leader should they have any worries during camp. Please be aware that campers who are impacting negatively on others’ experience may be asked to return home.
