Our church-wide camp will be held across the Grand Final Weekend this year from the 26th to the 29th of September.

This is an exciting time for the church and a great opportunity to increase our love for God and each other. The camp will be full of fun activities and family friendly. There will be workshops on various topics and we have guest speaker Richard Chin, the national director of AFES, sharing with us. Here’s a message from Richard:

Church camps have always been an encouraging time and a wonderful way to develop stronger friendships and relationships. The CrossCulture leadership are really looking forward to spending this time with you in September and we hope that you will be able to join us at Philip Island in September this year.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do the rates include?

The camp committee strives to come out with a reasonable rate for every age group. To break the cost down, the fees include:

  • 3 nights stay in Philip Island Adventure Resort
  • All meals provided (First meal supper on Thursday night, Full 3 meals on Friday and Saturday, Last meal lunch on Sunday)
  • Talks and workshop session by our guest speaker, Richard Chin, the national director of AFES
  • Games and outdoor activities during free time
  • And all the little details in between to ensure that the camp will be enjoyable and memorable for all.

Are there any discounts and payment plans available?

We understand that the rates for this camp can be quite expensive, especially for big families. So, if you are a family of more than 2 children, you are only required to pay for the two oldest kids in the family.

If you find it difficult to pay the large sum upfront, you can always pay by parts as long as the full amount is received by 14th July. Please write your name (e.g. Camp – DavidBeckham part 1) in the description when you transfer the amount to the church general account.

We want to encourage more people to join so if finances are a concern (whether you are a family or couples or singles), please speak to one of the pastors.

How do I pay for camp?

You will receive payment information after you completed registration. In case you missed that, you can pay by giving to the church’s general account:

BSB: 013 160
Account number: 483 584 935
Account name: CrossCulture General

But please make sure to add the reference/note: Camp-FirstNameLastName (e.g. Camp-DavidBeckham).

Will there be transport to and from camp?

If you require transportation, please let us know in the registration form. We will be matching you with those who are driving to the campsite.

So for those who are driving, please do note in the form how many spaces you have in the car and we will contact you closer to date to arrange carpooling.

What’s our living condition? Can I sleep in a tent to reduce price?

All rooms are fully air-conditioned and with ensuite bathroom to comfortably accommodate up to six people. Subtle screening, combined with an open plan layout, provides space along with privacy.

Each room contains six single beds. As is customary in the group accommodation industry, you must supply your own personal bedding, however pillows and supplementary doonas are provided.

Sadly, you are not allowed to camp in tents.

There will be heating / air conditioner in all facilities to ensure comfort year-round. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is also available throughout the facility.

Can I stay somewhere else and still attend daily camp activities?

Yes, you can book an accommodation in Phillip Island with your family or life group members and join us for camp activities.

The pricing for this is available in the registration form (link above), but to give you an idea, it costs $50 per day (on Friday and Saturday) and that includes lunch and dinner.

We have made this option available due to popular demands, i.e. we could no longer fit attendees in the camp accommodation, but would still love for as many people to be able to make it to camp!

Will I have free time?

Yes, we have allocated enough free time each day for you to recharge or get involved in fun activities provided at the campsite. This is also a great time for you to make new friends or bond with your life group…

What's in the program? What kind of food will be served?

We are still finalising some of the details, so do watch this space to find out more about the program. But here are some of the things that you can expect:

  • Talks by our guest speaker, Richard Chin, the national director of AFES
  • Workshops, testimony and sharing time
  • Games and outdoor activities
  • Watch the AFL Grand Final together
  • Free time – board games, beach and more!

Food is catered by the campsite. If you have dietary requirements, please list them out in the registration form so that we can cater for that.

Can I bring my pets to the campsite?

Sorry, we’ve asked the campsite and it is a pet-free zone so no pets are allowed.

Still, why would I come? Is this really worth it?

Well, we really can’t speak for you whether you will think this is worth it. But, we think that the church camp is a wonderful way to spend time and fellowship with one another and to get to know other church goers that you would not normally know.

While we work together as a body of Christ in CrossCulture, why not take this opportunity to come to church camp to finally get to know the person who is Bible reading on stage, the one working in office or the one standing welcoming you? Isn’t it great to know our brothers and sisters in church who are together with serving with you in church and in our local community as well?

Ultimately, our church is where we grow and the people is what makes CrossCulture a home for everyone. Your presence means a lot to us. We truly hope to see you there!
