NSW Kids Camp
This year saw our 5 day combined Primary and High school kids camp move to a new facility and location from previous years.
Welcome to Camp Elim: This purpose built facility for groups just 10 minutes south of Forster on the Lakes Way road is nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Lakes. Here we enjoyed a large modern dining and meeting hall, clean amenities, comfortable unit and cabin accommodation, level compact grounds and a much used basketball court. All this plus access to the lakes edge and canoeing. Camp Elim is fully catered for arrangement and this untested concept proved to be a success. Thankfully fine weather prevailed.
The camp theme “we believe” was taken from Hebrews 10: 39. The camp team names Jonathan, Jehoshaphat, Hezekiah, Rahab, Josiah and Joseph were bible characters chosen to help amplify this theme.
All RCI assemblies in NSW were represented along with the Sunshine and Gold Coast, Brisbane City and our beloved NZ brethren from across the Tasman. A great host of parents, leaders and Pastors (Graham, Mike and Steve) all ably supported and directed this annual endeavour.
A full program of Revival meetings, bible talks, music, prayer times, plays, crafts, games, suppers, hot meals and plenty of “hang time” added to the feeling of abundance. God’s blessing was further evident with 7 plus of our youth receiving the Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues and 3 of these were baptised in water while at camp. We do have a signs following ministry and Acts chapter 2 verse 4, 37 and 38 continue to be fulfilled.
Many thanks to our camp Pastor and co-ordinator Pastor Brian, Xavier and others for their organisation, time and direction.
