CMS Camps update

Under the challenging circumstances of COVID-19, CMS has made the decision not to proceed with our scheduled camps for 2020, CMS Camp MMM and CMS Camp Milimani.

While it is a great disappointment to not be able to gather together for these camps, we feel that this is the wisest way forward for the safety of our youth and children, and all those they come into contact with.

The theme for our Youth and Children’s camps in 2020 was ‘Turning the world upside down’ and it certainly does feel as if our world is upside down at the moment! Yet it is a great comfort to know that Jesus came not to condemn the world, but to save it through Jesus (John 3:17). We can be confident in the true and lasting hope we have in him.

We are looking forward to being able to engage with youth and children during CMS Summer School 2021, and are carefully planning how to do this in an effective way amidst possible COVID-19 restrictions. Please pray for CMS staff as we continue working towards this goal.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our Youth and Children’s ministries. Please continue to pray with us that God would grant a cure to this outbreak, and that each of us would respond in faith, hope and love as we serve our brothers and sisters in this time.

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

CMS Camp MMM

Camp MMM is a great opportunity for students in years 7 through 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.

If you have any questions about Camp MMM, please contact the Youth and Children’s Coordinator at yandc@cms.org.au.

 

CMS Camp Milimani

Camp Milimani is a great opportunity for kids in years 3 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 runs in the first week of the October school holidays in Katoomba. The 4-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.

If you have any questions about Camp Milimani please contact the Youth and Children’s Coordinator at yandc@cms.org.au.
