Fellowship Day – 6th April 2019

Our Fellowship Days are where we meet together to do some work around the CYC Waihola camp-site together and train together.

Each Fellowship day has a a working bee and a training session to allow our camp leaders up-skill in some aspect of practical leadership such as activities training, kitchen training, etc.

Much of CYC is run on the donation of funds and time given by it’s supporters … so come along and help out at our regular fellowship days.
