Children's Holiday Programmes and Mini's Camp

Each school holiday the team at Kauaeranga Valley Christian Camp plan and run the children's holiday camps. These are residential camps and the children are able to take part in a range of activities and games, provided with heaps of food and are encouraged to hear the life-saving message of Salvation from the Bible.

The children are put into teams led by experienced Senior Leaders, usually aged 17 and older. The Senior Leaders are supported by Junior Leaders (15-17 years old). We also encourage young people aged 14 years old to consider being a 'Leader in Training' or 'LIT'.

We are always looking for committed Christians (aged 14-20) who wish to develop or improve their leadership skills through involvement at these children's camps.  If you have experienced camp as a child and would like to make it possible for others to have the same opportunity then we would like to encourage you to come and be involved.

Please download the descriptions of what each leadership role involves and the application form if you would like us to consider you for future camps.
All leaders over 16 years old MUST complete a Police Vetting form and return for us to submit for Police Vetting purposes - thank you.
