You’re invited to State Kids’ Camp!

8-10 July 2024

Years 4-7 at school

SKC is run by the Baptist Churches of NSW/ACT for kids in Years 4-7 at school.
C
amp will be packed full of fun, friendship, encounters with God and memory making moments.

Registrations have now closed for 2024, but please register your interest for 2025 using the form below!

Main Sessions

This year at camp we’ll be digging into Psalm 23.  In our morning and evening main sessions you’ll meet our new drama characters who you’re going to love!  There will also be worship, hands on interactive Bible learning, and lots of great activities for your small group to help you apply and remember everything we’re learning about God as our Shepherd.

Activities

SKC is packed full of activities.  Throughout the week you’ll be working on a content creation project – you might create a stop motion video, build a lego masterpiece, create a piece of art, or choreograph a dance.  In the afternoons you might find yourself scaling a rock climbing wall, trying out tie dying, making a bottle rocket, or competing with your team in the SKC Giant Hunt.  You’ll meet leaders who can teach you new skills, help you make a meaningful difference in the world, or connect you with new friends over a relaxing activity.  Plus, you’ll love the night activities!  There’s something for everyone at State Kids Camp!

Date, Time & Transport

Camp is two-nights and three-days from 8-10 July.  Camp starts at 10am on Day 1, and concludes at 1pm on Day 3.  If you are coming with a group from your church, chat with your leader about travel arrangements.

Registration

You can register for State Kids Camp here.  The ticket cost includes all meals and snacks, accommodation in cabins and all activities and supplies.

Prior to camp, a form will be sent out which will allow you to list any dietary requirements in full.  This is a separate part of the registration process closer to the camp date.  There will also be a designated person at camp responsible for overseeing any medication.

We take child safety seriously, so all leaders at camp are screened and trained.

Leaders

If you would like to be a leader at camp, we’d love to hear from you!  Leaders (18+) have the opportunity to lead a small group of 6-7 kids through the pre-organised camp program.  As a leader, you’ll be assigned a cabin of kids (but you’ll sleep in a separate cabin with other leaders), and will lead them through all the camp activities.  There will be a 1.5 hour training session on Zoom in the lead up camp.  There’s no prep to do in advance, and everything will be provided for you.

Each year at State Kids Camp there is an opportunity for young people in Years 9-12 at school to apply to be a Junior Leader.  This opportunity is for young people who are already involved in leadership within their local church context, to stretch and develop their leadership further.  Junior Leaders are involved in all aspects of State Kids Camp, and are mentored and coached throughout camp.  Junior Leader spaces have been filled for 2024, but stay tuned for information about State Kids Camp 2025. 

Please register your interest as a leader, or get in touch with any questions you might have!
