Christian Life Week (CLW) is a five day camp for high school aged students that is centred on an unforgettable experience of faith, friendship and fun. Every year up to five CLWs take place throughout South-East and Central Queensland during the June-July and September School Holidays.

Each camp's program contains worship, small groups, games, various activities and personal challenges. They each take on a unique flavour, dependent upon location, camp facilities, leadership team and size of the camp.

For the first time in 2018 we are also hosting a Winter Kid Camp for Year 3-6 from the 2-6 July.
