Eastercamp Tell me everything!
What is Eastercamp?
Eastercamp is you, your mates and over 4000 others from around the country getting together for the best 5 days of the year. But talk is cheap, best you see for yourself.. check out the Promotional video here or wade through the wide selection of photos here.
What do I do there?
There are loads of awesome people to hang out with, heaps of slightly crazy activities to get stuck into, lots of chilled out relaxing things to do, yummo food, bands, sports, movies, jet boating, helicopter rides, thought provoking workshops, coffee, toasties, pies, skating, comps, mean-as live video, the grooveroom the list goes on.
You’ll also hear some choice speakers who'll give you some clues into who God is, not some judgemental old dictator shooting us from heaven when we stuff up, but actually alive and active in bringing colour, life, hope, forgiveness, restoration and justice to the whole world, to everyone and everything in it.
And that you are invited to actively join in being a part of it all.
Whether you're after a full-on high energy weekend raving/dancing/shuffling in the groove room or a chilled out vibe, crafts, movies, street art, cafes, water slides we got it all!
Once again, anyone can spout off about how good an event is. The proof is in the video evidence from last year...
Eastercamp starts on Thursday the 28th of March and runs till Monday the 1st of April 2013, Gates open 2PM on the Thursday with the programme beginning around 8PM. Camp finishes 1PM on Monday.
Check out the countdown on the homepage.
Eastercamp is situated at the coastal Spencer Beach Holiday Park, just 20min north of Christchurch. This site is awesome for so many reasons (shelter from southerly storms, superior drainage, lots of green space, hot showers and flush toilets are up there!).
Who can go?
Eastercamp is for anyone who is at highschool (or highschool aged). If you're in year 9-13 at school (or would be) then you're sweet to come to camp! Generally this means you're between the ages of 13-18 years old.
You need to register with a youth group (if you're not sure who to go with, ask your friends, they might be going with their local youth group and you can tag along) otherwise, ask your schools youth worker (if they have one) if you can go with them.
If you're not at school any more, ask your youth leader if you can come along as a leader, or you can even come help out and volunteer at camp. All volunteers need to be over 18 at the start of camp (for more info, check out our 'volunteers' section).
