About the Camp:
Over the years thousands of children and adults have enjoyed times of fun and Bible learning at Foxton Bible Camp. The buildings are well designed and equipped for all weathers and all ages. Our leaders are all volunteers but trained and experienced.

The programme will include times of Bible teaching, small Bible study groups, singing, swimming, outings, team games, and free time to enjoy relaxing or riding the flying fox or trampolines.

With the dramatic changes that are taking place in our society many young people are unsure of who they are. A knowledge of God’s Word, God’s plans for our world and God’s plans for each person is a stabilising influence in these times of anxiety.

The children will be in the care of experienced senior leaders and we consider it a privilege to have them entrusted to us. The submission of the Application Form below is subject to you being in full accord with the enrolment.

If your child is showing any signs of illness within 48 hours of camp please keep him/her at home.
