Kids Camp Out 2018

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

We would like to invite you to join us at Kids Camp Out 2018, an exciting event in the life of Churches in the Riverina which can support and encourage your church’s children’s ministry.

What is Kids Camp Out?

Kids Camp Out is an inter-denominational 24-hour camp organised by the Uniting Church for children in school years 3 to 6 in the Riverina. It is run by a committee which consists of leaders from several churches and faith communities, including the Uniting Church, Baptist, CRC, Fusion, Anglican and Catholic congregations. Children and their leaders are invited to attend from all over the Riverina and regularly include groups from Narrandera, Coolamon, Griffith, Wagga Wagga, Leeton, Ariah Park, Culcairn and Lockhart. Last year we had 75 children attend with a total community of 135.

The Aims of Kids Camp Out

  • A chance for children to meet other Christians from their own town and other towns for fellowship and fun.
  • A time for children to consider the claims of Christ for themselves
  • An event in which leaders can learn alongside and build a bond with children from their own church & community.
  • A way for leaders to give their children a weekend away without having to carry the whole burden of organisation and finance by themselves.
  • A time for leaders to enjoy each other’s company, gain some new ideas and link up with others in children’s ministries.

The Venue and Date of Kids Camp Out

Kids Camp out will be held at the Narrandera Race Course in Narrandera starting at 11.00am Saturday 17th March,2018 and finishing at approximately 1.00pm Sunday 18th March,2018.

Additional Information

Everyone sleeps in tents which are set up in town groups.

Each group is responsible for their own catering; however, it is possible to link up with other groups to share the catering.

Each church must provide sufficient adult leaders to produce a ratio of 1 adult leader for every 5 children. If this is a problem, other churches within that town may be able to help, but no church is to send children without providing leadership. For most activities, the children will be organised based on these small groups.

Theme

In 2018, we are celebrating 25 years of Kids Camp Out in the Riverina, so to recognise this fantastic achievement we are exploring the theme of Celebrate. Our guest speaker is Kristy Morgan, Family & Children’s Pastor at Roseville Uniting Church. Kristy will help us to celebrate and explore what it means for us to be a part of God’s family.

Cost

To celebrate our 25th Anniversary we are waiving the Kids Camp Out administration costs for this year. The only costs you will need to collect is any food or travel costs that your group will incur/charge.

Kids Camp Out is a great time away for the leaders and kids and a great opportunity for learning more about Jesus.
