Youth Ministry: The Real Thing blog

The Real Thing is a Youthworks Holiday Camp (formerly known as Camp Howard) that I lead on for 5 years or so. It's the sister camp to Swing into Action - another Youthworks camp that Row and I direct during the July Holidays.

They have a blog set up counting down to the camp this year. I think it's a great idea. Check it out here. I'm not sure who is running the blog - but I found the link on James and Anita's blog.

Youthworks Holiday Camps are great for Christian teenagers and for their non-Christian friends. They are great for Christian teenagers in that they can hear the gospel clearly proclaimed and be certain of their stance before God. They are fantastic for non-Christians to hear the glorious news of Jesus death and resurrection in a super-fun context. Youthworks Holiday Camps work hard at seeing teenagers followed-up into local youth groups.

For more info click here. Download the rego form here. And encourage any teens in your youth groups to think of friends they can take along.

Have you been on a Holiday Camp before? What's your fondest memory?

Congrats Matt & Tash on the engagement!!

    I'll start the ball rolling...

    Have you been on a Holiday Camp before?

    Yes about 15 - never as a camper - only as a leader. (+ a number of Crusaders camps)

    What's your fondest memory?

    So many!!
    Exciting seeing lives changed by the gospel.

    I met my wife Rowena on one (she wasn't my wife then... but is now)

    Praise God! top

    Yeh I've been on a couple of holiday camps as a kid and a leader.

    I remember I went on a golf camp once and sunk a monster put for eagle! happy days!

    I'll also have many fond memories of unusual rescues and unusual saviours at kookaburra valley.

    The best bit is always people hearing the gospel. Thank God for the ministry that holiday camps have - pray it continues! top
