About this cycle camp

We are reinventing an old favourite. With the resurgence of cycle trails popping up over Otago we thought it might be time to bring back the CYC Cycle Tour Camp.

It will take in some stunning central Otago scenery and be a great time to catch up with some old friends.

Important to know before enrolling

  • This very popular camp is limited to 12 spaces

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.

About this Camp

  • Love computers – so do we and we thought lets get 20 of them and run a sweet camp for all those hard core gamers out there.

Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Crysis and other games have been played in the past at this sweet camp.

But don’t think its just computers we do at camp …. not at all … in the past we have also:

  • building some ultimate air bottle rockets that should get some serious air time
  • electronic project construction – have you ever built your own computer before?
  • using GPS’s with a twist
  • Drone raced 
Oh … and did I mention we spend an entire afternoon at camp paint-balling. That’s right paint-ball. Taking the computer gaming scenarios and computer game shooting from computer outside and apply it to …. well each other … with paint!!
 
Small Print: CYC Waihola does not condone shooting each other unless it’s done with love ……. and paint 🙂

There are only 20 spaces at this extremely popular camp – so get in early and Enrol online now.

2020 Discipleship Camp

  • Co Ed School Years 11+ (whether it be polytech, tertiary studies or the workforce)
  • $110

About this 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 

 

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.
