Forest Lakes Church Camp


There’s plenty to keep you busy.  Flying Fox, Volleyball, Mudslide, Swimming Pool, 10 Pin Bowling, Table Tennis, Footy, etc.  
For those who prefer a slower approach to entertainment, there will be plenty of time for a chat and a coffee. Bring a pack of cards or board games.

Who’s this camp for?

This camp has been organised so people of all ages and abilities can come and join in the fun at their own level, and experience community at its best.  There will be no Sunday service at Gateways on the 22nd of March as we would like everyone to be involved at camp. If you can’t make it to camp and would like to join us for Sunday worship at Forest Lakes but do not have transport, please contact us.  For all inquiries contact: Darren Jourdain on 0274161538.


Main meals are provided as part of your camp fee.

Please eat before you arrive on Friday night as there will only be a light supper provided.
(Day visitors – please let Sylvia know if or when you’re coming out so we can notify the cooks. There will be a $15 charge for each meal.
If you have any special dietary needs, please let us know at least 2 weeks before camp so we can inform the camp administrators. If you enjoy sharing those special treats like chocolate or chippies or want to show off your favourite cake recipe, don’t forget to bring some with you. Could really come in handy during those evening card games.
