Creative Boost Camp SA/NT 2021
2-5 October 2021
Boost Kids Camp has become a regular date earmarked on the SA/NT Divisional calendar. However, this year looked a little bit different - for the first time we were excited to include the Worship Arts Team to support creative elements within the camp! This was executed through 6 electives, teaching new skills and expanding campers' knowledge of the abilities God has given them. We encouraged campers to embrace their creative minds through electives in Singing, Dancing, Drums, Making, Drawing and Sports.
Within SA/NT we are lucky to have passionate, experienced leaders to head up all these electives, who can lead in a way that makes sense to our young people. Our aim was to to inspire the next generation to confidently pursue their interests. For this to happen, we needed to provide a safe space, where kids felt valued and felt they belonged. The Boost Camp environment was a perfect setting for this and can I say, it was so much fun! We had 70 campers from all across the Division (some driving many hours to be there) gathering to learn about the Good News of Jesus while experiencing all the camp had to offer.
With so many amazing moments, the highlight for me was the Camp Concert. This was an opportunity for the young people to show what they had learned in their electives over the long weekend, and also a great time for all to celebrate our amazing kids! There were so many valuable friendships made, content taught, challenges experienced and skills learned. Best of all, this all took place within an environment showing God's love at all time.
