National Camp

Welcome to National Camp 2023


Labour Weekend ~ October 20th-23rd

For the dedication of the new wall of Jerusalem, the Levites throughout the land were asked to come to Jerusalem to assist in the ceremonies. They were to take part in the joyous occasion with their songs of thanksgiving and with the music of cymbals, harps, and lyres.

~Nehemiah 12:27 NLT

The Elevate National Camp Online 2022 theme was 'Stronger Together' and we learnt how our skills can and do enhance the community of Elevate National Camp. 

In the one hand, we hold the practical tools and equipment to build. Serving each other by using our skills. In the other hand, we hold our sword which is essential to keep our ground. This is our faith, our relationship with God and the Word of God.  

We read in Nehemiah chapter three how people united together to help rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. Well, with your help, by October 2023 the wall will have been rebuilt!

Come join us in those celebrations as we celebrate 40 incredible years of National Camp in person. We look forward to building alongside you in preparation for our big celebration TOGETHER!

Make sure to sign up for National Camp updates and follow our Elevate National Camp Facebook page for all the exciting announcements and updates.

Yes, the body has many different parts, not just one part.
