As a parent or caregiver, you’ve probably got lots of questions about Eastercamp. Please review the information below and take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page to learn more about Eastercamp
WHO RUNS EASTERCAMP?
Eastercamp is run by Canterbury Youth Services (CYS), a registered Charitable Trust. We have been running Eastercamp and other events like this for over 25 years. We are a Christian based trust providing a positive healthy Easter weekend for your teenager.
WHO LOOKS AFTER MY TEENAGER?
Your teenager will attend the event as part of a Youth Group (ask them which group). Outside the infrastructure and activities CYS provides, the key leader of your teenager’s group is responsible for their general wellbeing while at camp. Eastercamp requires each group coming to have at least 1 leader to 10 young people. Each group also has 2 or more “camp parents” that stay at the group’s camping area to look after the site and the young people.
WHAT ABOUT SECURITY AND MEDICAL EMERGENCIES?
Our Safety Team patrol the site 24 hours a day with direct contact to NZ Police, who also will be onsite at times during the event.
While we do take every precaution to keep the event safe, sometimes people get sick or injured. Rest assured we have a full team of experienced registered Doctors and Nurses on-site 24 hours to deal with any emergency.
