ABOUT

Youth Encounter camps range from three to seven days of live-in community that creates lasting friendships and leadership development while exploring who God is. Our camps use fun activities such as dirt bike riding, surfing, and lake biscuiting or wakeboarding to engage with young people.

We cater for learner and experienced participants by creating a safe environment where each person can release their potential to grow and become the incredible person they were created to be. Providing accommodation, transport during camp and food, camp is filled with great people, camp games and activities, life learning's and discussions from a Christian faith perspective.

Camps focus on:

  • Increasing self-worth through an atmosphere of acceptance where young people feel valued and understood
  • Sharing a message of hope and faith in Jesus and God's Fatherly love for every person 
  • Developing social skills through activity-based learning, communication and teamwork
