Growing up in a church, without doubt camps were the events that had the most positive influence on my life.  Spending significant quality time together with other people, the experiences we shared, were literally life shapping.  

Therefore it would be remiss not to include a page dedicated to camps.  Whilst each camp will be different depending on the age group, group dynamics, location, duration, and facilities available, this page aims to serve as a check-list, as well as help generate ideas to make your camp great!

Things to consider
