Every delegate is responsible for booking their own flights – please let your youth pastor in your campus know your flight times when they have been booked. See recommended flight times below:

Tribal Wars

Tribal Wars is an epic mix of fierce competition, a display of gifts and talents, moments that you'll remember forever, and the most ridiculous and entertaining battles.

Tribes compete in physical, intellectual, creative and mental challenges to see who will come out as the greatest of all time Tribal Wars Champions.

Four tribes: Green, Yellow, Blue and Red, will battle it out for the week. Everything every tribe member does has the power to tip the scales of victory. Choose your tribe wisely.

(Don't worry parents, we will keep your kids safe!)

Health & Safety

We take the health & safety of our campers very seriously. All of our team are police vetted and adhere to the ARISE Child & Protection Policy. We will have a trained first aid team onsite at all times. Our parents team and over 18 leaders have clear responsibilities to ensure that every individual is accounted for and kept safe – this team is present onsite at all times. All delegates are unable to leave the campsite at any time unless they have an approved leave pass. We also have strict curfew times that campers must be inside their cabins by each night.

Covid-19

In the event of Summer Camp 2021 being cancelled due to the government restrictions on mass gatherings, every delegates ticket will be automatically transferred for the same ticket type for Summer Camp 2022.
