2016 First Aid Refresher and Training Course

2016-11-first-aid-training-cover-01

CYC Waihola is running a one-day Practical First-Aid Course through the Red Cross. We have been able to gain some very good training rates so are able to offer the following courses at well below the usual cost:

  • Practical First Aid Full Course (Unit Standards 6401 and 6402) – 4 hours (9am – 1pm) – $140 each
  • Practical First Aid Refresher (Unit Standards 6401 and 6402) – 4 hours (9am – 1pm) – $110 each

This course is the equivalent of Workplace First Aid and is valid for two years.

Both courses will run on Saturday 26th November 2016 from 9.00am through to 1.00pm at the Clark House.
The training is open to anyone – they don’t need to be a CYC volunteer – we must reach 10 people in each course to make the pricing work so please register your name by emailing kidscamps@cycwaihola.org.nz .
The instructors will be focusing on providing core first aid scenarios but may use applications that CYC Leaders will encounter within a kids camp ministry. It is essential we have more first aid qualified leaders within our camps.

To make it cheaper we are making it a shared lunch so bring something to share – still talk to us if this is too much and we might be able to sweeten the deal for you if you are a poor lonely student.

At the end of the day you have a current First Aid Certificate that is valid for 2 years. You will come away with NZQA Unit Standards 6401 and 6402

CYC Youth Ministry Workshop

Following on from our AGM CYC Waihola presents our guest speaker:

Brian Harvey

Brian Harvey serves as the Youth Ministries Director for the Presbyterian Church of Victoria in Australia and has recently been reappointed for a further 5 years. For over fifteen years, he has been involved in local church ministry and in denominational youth work. He has enjoyed being a local church youth pastor and a parish minister. Brian loves being married to Anne, has two adult sons, one dog and one cat. He also enjoys reading and riding motorbikes.

 

Brians Workshop will focus on:

Relational Ministry

“Being involved in youth ministry is much more than just one night a week. It means getting involved in the lives of teenagers and

their families. This workshop will help you to understand how you can be involved in these lives

without losing your own, and how you can make an impact that goes beyond the teenage years.”

2015 Leaders / Fellowship Tramp

 

 

The CYC Waihola leaders tramp is now an annual classic.

This year we have decided to take a week and do the Milford Track.

All leaders and volunteer staff are welcome to attend this tramp. Anyone really keen for some weekend of fellowship with some ‘neat people’ are also welcome to attend this tramp.

 

It is a winter tramp so expect the following from the weekend:

– easy going track

– minus 0 degrees temperatures and maybe snow

– warm fellowship and good food

Those interested will need to contact Tim at the CYC office to talk about the tramp.

Some limited transport may be available from Waihola to the tramp and home again.

 

Your gear will need to include:

– Good boots with ankle support

– Very warm clothing (including two sets of thermals)(last time we did this tramp there was a -5 degree night in the hut)

– Very warm sleeping bag (again it is very cold)

– Wet weather gear (last time it snowed)

– Your own food (although dehydrated food is available for purchase from CYC at our cost price)

 

More details will be published to those that have signed up to go.
