What you can expect:
Calvary Family Camp is a relaxed environment where our church family connects on a deeper level across generations. There are friendly people always ready to have a chat, throw a log on the fire, play a game, paddle a canoe, do life together.
Many of our children spend most of their days on/in the water and then cooking marshmallows around the fire at night. Others enjoy a bush walk, 4wd, good rest away from the city and the blessed catch an afternoon nap. In the unfortunate chance we get a passing shower or rain, card & board games under the gazebos are the favourite.
Each morning we share a devotional time aimed to bring something for all, from children to adult.
National Park Rules apply (No Pets) – Camp Somerset is a Family Friendly, Alcohol and Drug Free Facility.
Please contact us if you would like to bring your own powered watercraft.
