"For how the children grow, so shall be the shape of Aotearoa"

- Dame Whina Cooper -

Kids Camps (NZ) are specifically designed to create happy memories for children who have been victims of abuse, neglect and abandonment. Children between the ages of 7 to 11 years are referred by psychologists and welfare agencies. The five-day program of each camp is filled with activities designed to build trust, self-esteem and confidence within each child. All camp personnel are fully committed, experienced, trained and most importantly screened and Police checked.  The camp offers these children an environment that is safe and non- threatening. - more -

A Statement from our outgoing National Director and the National Board:
As I reflect on working for camp ministries, I love that the camps bring hope, healing and restoration to hurting children in NZ.  
This has been an incredible experience and journey to be on.  Seeing the camps set up and seeing so many kids smile and grasp the fact that they can believe in a destiny that is promising, that they are beautiful and loved.  To witness transformation within one short week of camp and to watch the development in each child over the years as they have returned to the camp, has been life changing... -  more -
