Parent Info

Accommodation

How good is camping! All participants from local youth ministries will camp onsite. Groups have the option of either bringing their own tents or hiring them through State Youth Camp. Each group will be allocated an area within the designated camping space for their group to ensure each group has an adequate amount of space. Get your creative on and come up with fun ways to ‘glamp’ up your site!

Food

The camp is fully catered, and as such we will provide all main meals from Saturday breakfast through to Monday breakfast. Please note, no meals are provided for Friday night. We will be providing a “pack and go” lunch on the Monday for groups travelling long distances to go home. We encourage you to bring any snacks or lollies your group may want.

Special dietary requirements will be catered for those participants who specify such requirements as part of their registration. Please make sure this information is clearly written on your registration information.

Group Supervision

All young people who attend the camp as a part of your group are the responsibility of your ministry and its’ leaders. It is expected that you will provide an appropriate number of male and female adult leaders to supervise the young people in your group. While the organisers of the camp will make every effort to ensure the camp and its activities are safe for your young people, it is understood your leaders will also attempt to ensure your group’s young people interact with the camp and its’ activities in a safe and respectful manner.

It is also expected all adult leaders attending camp with your group will comply with your church’s Safe Spaces policies, including having completed a Working With Children Check (WWCC). The list of adult leaders coming to camp with your group will need to be submitted at the time of registration, along with their WWCC numbers and birthdates so that BYM is able to perform a crosscheck.

Registration

All registrations must come through a group booking for your church’s youth ministry. Numbers must be finalised and received by SYC before Tuesday, 5 September. All registrations must be paid in full before the start of camp. Additions to your group may be discussed with SYC after the cut-off date provided there is still space in the camp. No withdrawals or reductions in numbers will be accepted after the cut-off date.

Early Bird

Early bird rates for campers end on Tuesday, 15th of August.

Family Discount

A family discount of $20 per sibling of full paying campers applies. Please contact SYC staff for more information.

Tent Hire

If your group wishes to hire tents for the weekend, there is an additional charge of approximately $120* per tent (fully setup before you arrive). The tents are a large canvas style tent which comfortably houses 4 people and their luggage. The cost is per tent, NOT per person. Tent hire is an ‘all-in’ or ‘all-out’ situation for your group, so you will either need to hire tents for everyone or source your own.

To hire a tent, please contact the SYC team to place your order by registration cut off date, the 5th of September. You will then receive an invoice to your church.

*Tent price is subject to change, please check back with SYC to confirm the cost of tent hire before booking.
