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.
