God’s Crime Scene Camp (May 2021)

About This Camp

Does God exist?

How can we know for sure?

Do science and ethics give us any clues?

Come along to our first ever Waihola Worldview Weekend and find out!
 
This weekend camp is boys and girls for School Years 6 – 9 in 2021 (ages 9 – 13) and explores one of humanity’s most fundamental questions, one for which there is tons of debate in our world today.
 
Over the weekend, campers will engage with eight great arguments from contemporary science and ethics that God does indeed exist.
 
Featuring content from the book “God’s Crime Scene for Kids” by J. Warner and Susie Wallace and our guest speaker, Dr. Ross Pettigrew, this camp is fun, engaging, and thought provoking. Your kids will have tons to share with you when they get home from what we hope will be a life-changing weekend.
 
Campers will learn about such things as:
For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
- Romans 1:19-20

Discover eight great arguments from science and ethics that prove the existence of God.

About our Worldview Weekend Camps:

Our Worldview Camps are for young people who have a desire to know more about God and to strengthen their Christian faith. These camps explore the Christianity in a deeper way than CYC Waihola’s regular camps.

Campers will learn reasons to be confident in what they believe as Christians. They will be equipped to explain the Christian faith to non-Christians.  They will see that God is the most reasonable explanation as the origin of everything we see and experience in the world.

2018 Discipleship Camp

God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what.

Hebrews 4:12-13

The focus of the Christian Discipleship Camp is to equip young people for life through Bible teaching, practical lessons and discussion.

You might be about to consider leaving home shortly – maybe to move onto studies and flatting, or perhaps a career and even starting your own family.

As we become adults in this crazy world we often come under pressure to conform to the ‘worlds wisdom’. It can be overwealming dealing with your friends and family that may view Christianity just a fairy story. We aim to give you encouragement, wisdom and tools to continue in strength with your walk with the Lord.

This camp is designed to help you live ALL of LIFE for GOD.

Topics covered include:

  • How does Christianity stack up compared to other religious worldviews?
  • How can we maintain our walk with the Lord once we leave home?
  • Christian Flatting: a howto guide!
  • What is my calling in life?
  • How are we to relate to the world?
  • Defending our faith against naysayers
