If you’re in high school or heading there in 2020, make sure you’re part of the action. The camp happens in beautiful Villiersdorp—at the SOS Campsite. The action will be focused on the big top on the site where we can gather together around God’s Word. A great programme is planned with plenty of action, fun, competitions, and more. Book online now—the deadline is Friday 29th November. The cost is R1650 (siblings go for R1400). Sell your cell phone, beg your parents, and tell your friends!

SOS Campsite

Howzit Campers,

Cross Word Cape Youth Camp 2019 is on the way! We’re going to be back at the SOS campsite in beautiful Villiersdorp. This year we’ve got two awesome speakers. David Kobedi is going to be helping us to see what "Living life to the FULL" really looks like from John's Gospel. And Luan Stoop will be leading us through the Old Testament book of Job, helping us understand how God can be in control even when there is so much suffering in the world.

Cross Word Camp is a super exciting end of year camp for teenagers in high school (grades 8 – 12) and for any grade 7 who is going to high school in 2020. About 300 people attend, and a lot of time is spent around God’s Word (the Bible), getting to grips with what God says to us through it, and how we are to respond. We also spend a lot of time getting to know one another, whether it be playing soccer, board games, touch rugby, mountain hikes or just hanging by the pool.

For a beautiful venue, awesome food, incredible teaching, and great fellowship for 6 days, 5 nights – you’re getting it at a steal of only R1650 (R400 less than what it really costs!). And if you have a brother or sister coming along, they get R250 off and they only pay R1400! So sell your old roller-blades, wash a couple of cars, do a fundraiser at your church. Do whatever you have to do to come to camp, it’s not to be missed!

I can't wait to see you all there!
