Best ten days of my year
“Ten days on a Scripture Union Family Mission with my family each summer are the best ten days of my year.”
1. Is financial assistance available?
Up to 100% discounts available for those in need! To apply, just fill in a registration form for any SU Camp – on the second page, under 'Have you made, or do you wish to make, an application for Kids to Camp financial support?,' select 'Yes' from the dropdown menu, fill in the 'Kids to Camp' application form and finish completing your registration form, and someone will be in touch with you shortly!
Can I invite my friends?
Yes, just tell them to register online or contact the Camp Director for any further information.
Can you take care of my child’s special medical requirements?
Part of the camper registration process is to inform us of any medical conditions or requirements your child might have that could impact their time at camp. Our First Aid officers are equipped to administer medication as stipulated by you at registration. If the camp has any questions regarding the medical requirements they will contact you prior to the camp beginning.
Do you cater for children with special dietary requirements?
Yes, please provide a comprehensive list of dietary requirements when registering your child onto camp. We are able to cater for most children with special dietary requirements, such as vegetarian, gluten-free and lactose intolerance. In certain circumstances, parents may be required to provide special food for their child to bring to camp.
How are medical incidents dealt with on camp?
All SUNSW Camps have Senior First Aid qualified leaders who will deliver first-response treatment in the event of an injury or illness. A decision is then made about whether further medical attention is needed and if the camper needs to visit a medical centre or hospital. Scripture Union NSW or the Camp Director will contact the emergency contact parent as soon as possible if outside medical attention is required and if there are any major incidents that occur.
How many leaders are on each camp?
SU NSW Camps are committed to caring for your child, with a ratio of 1 leader for every 5 campers and in most camps, this ratio is even lower. Each volunteer has a current Working With Children Check and training in Child Protection.
What does my child need to take on camp?
Prior to camp, you will receive a ‘camp information pack’ by email with all the details of what your child will need to bring to camp. Drop off and pick up times and location of the camp will also be included.
What is the Christian component of the camps?
Each day of camp features a short, age-appropriate Bible presentation and small group time for campers to talk about issues in greater depth and ask questions about God, life and everything.
Who looks after the campers?
A team of energetic, committed, Christian Leaders look after the campers throughout camp. All leaders are reference-checked, trained in child protection procedures and have completed government child protection requirements. In addition to adult leaders, a number of Camps involve Junior Leaders who will get right alongside your child throughout the week.
Will it be safe?
SU NSW Camps and their volunteers hold a strong commitment to the well-being of everyone who participates in our camps. We operate under Scripture Union guidelines and strive to stay in line with and even ahead of the standards that are in place for the camping industry.
