WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO?
One of the major purposes of the weekend is to bring people together and to strengthen friendships across the church. We will have lots of time to relax over meals and in the afternoons so we can get to know each other and build our Grace City Church family. As well as spontaneous sporting activities, however it will be cold so pack warm clothes and marshmallows!
Church Camp is also a time to relax and have fun with family and friends. Vision Valley is a retreat in the beautiful surroundings of Arcadia with plenty of space for you to explore and experience the authentic Aussie bushland.
We also have some special activities prepared for anyone who would like to add some adrenaline to their weekend:

WHATS THE ACCOMODATION LIKE?
Most rooms are non-ensuite for up to 4 people (with 2 bunk beds). If you have teenagers, they will be allocated (unless you specify otherwise) into dorm rooms of up to 10 people (5 bunk beds).
(If you have a family of 5 or more, and none of your children are teenagers, and you are not planning on camping, please contact the church office regarding room options)
If you are a couple willing to share a 4 bed room (2 bunk beds) with another couple; or willing to separate from your partner and share a 4 bed room (2 bunk beds) with same-sex friends, please let us know. You might even get a discount!
The other option is to camp, yes you read that correctly, you can camp! For all tent lovers, we have hired a field in the middle of the site for those who wish to bring their own tents and stay at a reduced rate. This rate includes all meals and access to bathrooms and showers.
There may be an opportunity for adults to be in single rooms but that is dependant on availability. Please contact the church office for more information.
Children under the age of 13 are to be accommodated with their parents but teenagers 13 and over can either be accommodated in their parent's room or you may request for them to be placed in a room with other 'same-sex' teenagers.
