National Camp 2023 Highlights





What an amazing time of fellowship and fun, as we remembered and reflected on previous camps and celebrated 40 years of National Camp! Praise be to God for His hand on this ministry over the years! It was so encouraging to see all those who could attend. Here are some of the highlights from the camp.

For 40 years National Camp has been gathering people living with disabilities from around New Zealand for a weekend of fun, worship and connection.

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!

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.

"Praise God that we were able to join you for National Camp this weekend via Zoom... Thank you too for your encouragement to join. I had a hunch to invite these friends and God moved beautifully to bring about His purposes... We also loved the speakers and the amazing messages that they had. The theme for this year was 'spot on'. Well done everyone who helped to make this weekend happen."
