NSW & ACT Branch

Youth and Children

CMS is committed to partnering with Christian parents in helping to disciple their children and youth.

We have a particular desire to see the next generation embrace the vision of a world that knows Jesus, and adopt praying, caring and giving to missionary work from a young age. We also love planting seeds in the hearts of young people to urge them to start thinking about mission and where God could take them in his service.

We run camps each year for different age groups, where young people enjoy fellowship together, study God’s word, worship our Lord and of course have plenty of fun.

Camps update

After two years of disruption, we’re excited to share plans for our ongoing ministry to youth and children as we proclaim the life-changing message of Jesus’ death and resurrection to the next generation.

As our camps return, however, we are introducing some changes to ensure Camp MMM and Milimani can go ahead this year with the utmost safety, and with potential for growth.

After careful consideration, we are introducing three main changes to the Youth and Children’s program. These will affect the:

  1. structure and duration of camps
  2. timing of camps
  3. transport to camps

To find out more about the changes, including our plans for 2023 and beyond, go to the Youth and Children’s Program Changes FAQ page.

CMS NSW & ACT provides great opportunities for children and young people throughout the year.

CMS Camp MMM

Camp MMM (Junior High and Senior High) are great opportunities for students in school years 7 to 12 to spend a week in God’s word, thinking through mission and God’s plan for this world. Apart from regular Bible study, there are a number of activities throughout the week and a special cross-cultural experience in the middle of the week.

Campers will be challenged as God speaks to them through his word. Campers will hear from current missionaries, share in prayer together, reignite past friendships and make new ones, have a lot of fun, and eat some great food up in the beautiful (but chilly!) Blue Mountains.

CMS Camp Milimani

Camp Milimani is a great opportunity for kids in school years 4 to 6 to spend time in God’s word, thinking through mission and God’s plan for this world. Apart from a daily Bible study, there are a number of activities throughout the camp.

Our primary school aged camp will run in the first week of the term 3 school holidays in Katoomba. The 3-day camp is full of activities, Bible talks, visits by missionary families, and more. Over 200 kids come together from all over NSW and ACT and some even from interstate.
