2020 Hunting Camp

Cancellation (23rd March 2020):

We regret to inform you that our 2020 Hunting Camp that was to be held in a few weeks time has now been cancelled. 
As a camp we have been closely monitoring the Ministry of Health guidelines and the quickly evolving situation. Events like camps were fairly uncertain with the nationwide upgrade of the Government’s Alert Level nationwide to Level 2 on Saturday. And now with the alert level moving to Level 4 this coming Wednesday we can no longer run any events at CYC Waihola for the foreseeable future. 
We can only hope and pray that the situation around the globe and in NZ improves soon.

For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
