Family Camps

“Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28)

Family Camps are precious times to strengthen family relationships, and a chance to be refreshed spiritually, emotionally and physically. Campers are able to take time out from their ordinary lives, leaving busyness or worries behind for a few moments, while they enjoy uninterrupted time to have fun and relax. Some time is set aside to reflect on deeper issues of life and experience in the loving support of a caring community. A truly ‘all ages’ event, the camp enables people to share life in a relaxed, caring environment.
