Pointy-J Camp 2017 - Rego & Permission Note

Camp This Year

This year we are very excited for Pointy J Camp! We are staying at the same place as last year's camp (Scotts Head Christian Youth Centre). A wonderful campsite for us to enjoy and a safe place to play. 

Here's Some info about camp:
The leaders for the weekend are the people who have been leading your youth for the whole year.

If you need to speak to a leader during camp please call John (0439 023 953). Your youth are welcome to bring their mobile phones on camp and can call you when they would like to. We will ask them to keep them in their bags during the day. 

We will have camp cooks/House Parents who will feed us delicious food all week long. If your child gets hungry during the day, fruit will always be available from the kitchen.

THE COST

Cost of Pointy J Camp is $150. This covers 3 nights accommodation, 4 days food, and activities. (There is no part-time attendance at camp). There is a reduced cost for camp at $130 pp for second & third siblings.

To pay, please direct deposit to the details below, tagged "Child's Surname - PJ CAMP" (e.g. "J Hanlen - PJ CAMP"). You can pay for multiple siblings together, we will work that out based on the Surname and amount you have paid. If you have any worries or questions about money please contact John (jhanlen@tpcc.org.au), we don't want money to be the reason anyone misses out on such an awesome week.

THE TRAVEL DETAILS

Camp starts at 2pm on Tuesday October 3. We'll be departing from The Point Community Church Office (underneath coles @ lighthouse plaza) as soon as everyone has arrived. Please have lunch before camp and bring some afternoon-tea for the trip. 

To get to Scotts Head and back we will be driving. All drivers will have their full license (no P-platers will be driving kids without parental consent) as per our Pointy-J policy. We won't have enough seats between the leaders and will need some parents to drive, so if you can help with transport, please indicate below (it would be really appreciated!).

We will be returning at approximately 3:30 on Friday October 6.  

THE ACCOMMODATION

Our campsite is wonderful with the beach metres from the door. The Youth will be sleeping in secure cabins with new ensuite bathrooms. All swimming will be supervised by a surf bronze medallion leader, and we will run through water safety during the camp (please indicate your child's swimming ability below). You can have a look at the accommodation here
