Join us for Y-FACTOR "SHINE" 2016! We can't even begin to tell you how incredible last year's camp was. You'll just have to pack a bag and join us this time round.
The CYS Staff and Youth Ministers from all over the Sydney Archdiocese have been working for months to make this year's camp even better (if that's possible?!) So, if you are currently in yrs 7-12, then come have the time of your life these Easter school holidays!
There'll be heaps of time for games, activities, talks, discussion, prayer and a chance to grow in your faith and relationship with God. This camp is so big we can only run it once a year so get on board now or miss out!
Being held on the 18th of April - 21st of April at Youthworks.
