Harmony Events

17 & 18 September 2021

Get ready for Church Camp at Hanmer Springs! This will be an incredible weekend to come together as one big church family to relax, worship and get to know each other better. Held at the Forest Camp with plenty of family activities planned, there will also be opportunity to soak in the hot pools (extra cost applies), grab coffees in the village or take a hike up Conical Hill. Price includes two evening meals and 3 nights accommodation.

 

Accommodation

Three options for accommodation all at the same price.

1. Cabins

There is a wide range of accommodation at Hanmer Springs Forrest Park. This year we will find the perfect fit for you. We are wanting to host people mostly within their appropriate groupings. For example, families will be grouped together and the Young Adults will be in the Forestry Huts. If you have any specific requirements in this regard please let us know and we are only too happy to answer your questions and help where we can.

2. Camping

There is plenty of room onsite for those who love the adventure of camping. Upon registration please let us know and we will make sure you get all the information you need.

3. Campervan or Caravan

There are powered and unpowered sites available for your campervan or caravan. Upon registration please let us know and we will make sure you get all the information you need for this option.

Meals

Evening meals will be provided on Friday and Saturday Nights including GF, DF & Vegan options.

We love to gather together in the evenings to share a meal. However you must bring your own breakfast and lunch to camp. There are several kitchens onsite for you to store your food in and all have tables and chairs for you to gather in and dine with other campers.

Tea and Coffee is provided and we will have a barista on site in the mornings for you to get your morning dose of caffeine. We will also have hot chocolates available for everyone to enjoy in the evenings!
