Junior Youth Camp (JYC)
26-29th April 2019
JYC is our camp for youth in years 6-8. Escape down south to Port Hacking with your friends for a jam-packed weekend you’ll never forget! For two nights and two days, you’ll be playing games, singing songs, praising God and learning about his son Jesus. That’s in between free time, quiet times and discussion groups with your leaders! This year we’re digging into the book of Daniel in the Old Testament to learn about how to stand strong in your faith. JYC is a great way to check out what Christianity is about, or to take your faith to the next level.
Tickets are selling crazy fast, so book now!
Katoomba Youth Christian Convention (KYCK)
26-28th April 2019
Looking for a crazy, faith-changing experience? Then come to KYCK! Our senior youth (years 9-12) will be heading up in to the Blue Mountains together for an unforgettable weekend at the Katoomba Conference Centre. Join 2000 other youth from all over the country in a massive warehouse to singing praises to God and hear mind-blowing talks on the New Testament book of John. Every year, stacks of kids commit their lives to Jesus at KYCK, so if you’re checking out Jesus, this is the place to be. If you already follow God, KYCK promises to ignite your faith and give you a whole new love of God.
Tickets to KYCK always sell out, so get in asap!
15th-19th January 2020
INVERT is the best way to launch your year at Youth at St Matts! Every January we all head away to Vision Valley, from our brand new year 6’s, to our veteran year 12’s. Gear up for four days of hot, sweaty, summer fun as we come together in fellowship to play games, praise God and bury ourselves in the Word. Every year is even better than the last, and it’s the best way to experience St Matts Youth Community, so get around it!
INVERT 2019 is over, but INVERT 2020 will be here before you know it, so put it in your diary! Right now!
Leaders In Training (LiT)
LiT is our spring camp for senior youth (years 9-12). It’s hosted and run by Anglican organisation Youthworks, who partner with and support churches all over Sydney.
It’s aimed at youth who are firm in their faith, and ready to take it to the next level. It’s a brilliant time and you’ll meet heaps of other youth from around Sydney, but it’s also pretty hardcore. You’ll be pushed like never before to think about your faith, what it means, and how you can use your gifts for the glory of God. The whole week is about growing you as a Christian, as a leader and as a servant of Jesus and His people. If you’re looking to gain crucial leadership skills and expand your bible knowledge and understanding, then this is the camp for you!
Every year, St Matts sends a few leaders along with our youth to support them throughout the week.
All our camps are run by trained leaders who have completed Safe Ministry courses and have a Working With Children Check. These are the same leaders that run our Friday night Youth program, so your kids may already be familiar with them.
Financial aid is available for all our camps.
For any and all questions regarding our camps, contact our Youth Minister Ross Collins, who’d love to chat with you!
