Young people living outside of the South East corner and major regional towns in Queensland, face a number of challenges that are not normally part of the everyday experience of young people living in cities and larger towns. Faith-enhancing and leadership-building opportunities are hard to come by for these young people and the difficulty of participating in leadership training events adds to the particular stresses faced by young people from rural and remote areas.
Peak faith experiences like Easter camps are one of the top formational pillars in spiritual development for young people. Easter Madness will provide young adults with a positive experience to walk through the Easter journey, together with young people from metropolitan areas, and enjoy the same opportunities for leadership, faith and social development.
Research indicates that over a quarter of church attendees make their first faith decision in the key youth years (10–19 years) whilst 28.7 per cent of 15-29 year olds cite church camps as a significant factor in helping them come to faith.
You can help young people from regional, rural and remote Queensland to have the same opportunity as their counterparts in the south east corner to discover what a relationship with Jesus means to them, consolidate their faith commitment and develop leadership skills to exercise in their own communities.
How will your donation be used?
All fundraising proceeds will go towards fully subsidising the registration costs of young people from regional, rural and remote Queensland, to enable them to attend Easter Madness (Registration fee is $250 per person).
The registration fee of $250 covers camp attendance and accommodation costs for the four-day residential camp. The next camp will be held from 6 to 9 April 2018 at the Sunshine Coast Recreation Centre, Currimundi.
