Who organises Eastercamp?

Canterbury Youth Services (CYS), a registered charitable trust committed to helping local churches build healthy youth communities.

As well as our involvement with Eastercamp, CYS also runs an annual Youth Leader training weekend, Intermediate age events and Xtend Leadership Camps for Christian high schoolers.

Contact the CYS office for information on these events, or for youth leader coaching, youth work resources, youth pastors training courses, mentoring and networking.

See www.cys.org.nz for more info.

What are the contact details for the Eastercamp office?

Please see our Contact page.

PS: our office isn’t always staffed (sometimes we’re out and about setting up Big Tops and baking pies etc.) so ring first. Please and thank you.

Is EC a Christian event?

You betchya!

But we welcome people from any walk of life to the event. You don’t have to be part of a church or youth group at all (but you do need to come with one) – you’ll have a mint time whatever you believe!

EC is a combined Christian Youth Group event. Churches from all denominations attend from all over the South Island.

When is EC?

Thurs 6 April – Mon 10 April 2023. The gates open 2pm on the Thursday with the programme kicking off in the Big Top at 8pm. Camp finishes at 1pm on the Monday.

(Why does it have to keep changing from year to year??!!! Don’t blame us, blame this system)

Put it in your calendar, you wouldn’t want to show up a weekend late… #megafail.
