Important to know before enrolling

  • This very popular camp is limited to 12 spaces
  • Our horse and pony camps are enrolled on the basis of riding ability (rather than first enrolled first in). This is because we only have so many horses suited to each rider ability level so can take only so many beginner riders, only so many intermediate riders and only so many experienced riders.

Camp South 2024

SPACES LEFT

REGISTER HERE:

Equipping the next generation to live out their new life in Christ.

Do you know any teens or young adults who want to grow their faith in Christ, deepen their knowledge of the Bible, and learn how to apply a biblical worldview to the difficult questions facing our culture? Then this camp is for them!

Aimed at late teens and young adults ages 15-22, we will take on some of the most challenging worldview and apologetics topics our day. We have several speakers, who will equip and encourage students as they learn how to think biblically in all aspects of life. They will challenge students to stand for Christ in the classroom, in the workplace, and with their friends. Students will all get a theme booklet and T-shirt (get excited!!).

 
In addition, students will build relationships, engage in thought-provoking discussion, play fun games, eat great food, visit the beach, enjoy the campfire, and enjoy God’s beautiful creation. We’re so excited to see you there!
 
Check out the video of our last apologetics camp here!

Pursuit 2023

REGISTER HERE:

How do we pursue Christ, and godliness, through all seasons of life? 

This is the question we’ll be asking at Pursuit 2023. We will delve into the Biblical worldview of friendships, singleness, dating, and marriage, and explore what it looks like to pursue Christ while navigating these areas. We live in a world where these topics are widely talked about, but Christ is seldom mentioned as the center of these. We are here to change that!

Join us for a week of thought-provoking talks, morning devotionals, lake time, activities at camp/around Queenstown, and smores!

Space is limited to 40 campers, so sign up early and spread the word to your friends!

About this Camp

CYC Waihola Family Camp is a camp of fellowship, teaching, discussion, great fun, good food and above all getting closer to God through His Holy Scriptures.

The camp is for all families, couples and individuals that desire to dig deeper into the historic faith of the Scriptures. CYC Waihola puts together this camp believing that the Bible is fully inspired by God and is the final authority on all matters of the Christian faith.

The Family Camp committee expects all those at camp to attend all meetings, fully support the camp programme and happily observe the posted camp rules. You will also be expected to assist with camp duties where possible.

Camp Speakers

Here are some of the speakers we have lined up to speak this year….

Logan Hagoort

Bio:
Originally from the dairy farm in the Waikato, Logan has been married to Josella for 16 years and has been blessed with 4 children: Chloe, Isaiah, Sjannette, and Mia. He is now residing in South Auckland where he is the Minister of Covenant Presbyterian Church Manurewa. He is passionate about keeping the Church centered upon the simple things Jesus Christ has called it to do. He also teaches the Biblical Greek language for Grace Theological College in Auckland.

Topic:
Centrality of worship for the Church, the individual, and the family: One of the central tasks for the Church and the Christian is to worship God, but what is worship? Why is it so important? Over these talks we will be looking through the Bible to try and understand the centrality of worship for the Church, the family, and the individual.

Trevor Webb

Bio:
Trevor Webb (and his wife Mary) both became Christians at Lincoln University and were married in 1974. They are blessed with four daughters and four grandchildren. Trevor has been a ruling elder for over forty years in the Christchurch GPC congregation and they are now members of Grace Bible Church, Dunedin. Trevor has a passion to unfold the relevance of the Old Testament Scriptures.

Topic:
How God kept the Jews through Captivity to Messiah. The 400-year period between the Testaments are often called ‘The Silent Years’. That is because there is no record of this period in Bible history. However, this does not mean that God was not at work! The talks will consider how God preserved his people in Babylon, Egypt and Judea. As in the Old Testament, there were times when God’s people flourished and times where they degenerated. There were heroes of the faith and corrupters of godliness. We will see how prophecy was being fulfilled and how the world was being prepared for the Gospel.

Mervyn Marshall

Bio:
Mervyn Marshall lives in Gore with his wife Marjorie. He is an elder in the Grace Presbyterian Church of Gore and long serving member of the CYC Waihola Council. 

Topics:

  • Covenantors in Scotland
  • John G Paton ” missionary to the New Hebrides”
