General Information:

The Christian Surfers NSW Central Region was formed in 2005, each year they hold the Regional Teams Challenge. This is a fun weekend where each mission comes together for fellowship, good times & to compete in the team’s challenge, CSA tag team surf competition. 8 people from each beach compete in the challenge. CS Manly have attended twice, and are returning this year, likely with a much bigger crew! Despite the fun competition that the surf comp offers, it is far from what camp is about. The weekend is about spending time with the wider Christian Surfers community, meeting and hanging out with groms from other beaches around NSW, and enjoying the awesome surf the North NSW coast offers!

How are we getting there:

This will depend on how many we have register for the camp. If we have enough people register, we will hire a mini-bus for the weekend, which I will be able to drive up (I have my Heavy Rigid Licence). The more ideal alternative, is campers will be convoying up with leaders and parents in their respective cars.

The trip from Sydney to camp Elim is roughly 3:30 hours. We leave Friday afternoon, and return on Sunday afternoon.

1700: arrive at the Meakes House (1 Motpelier Place, Manly) with all you bags and boards

1700-1730: pack gear, boards and bags into the cars

1730: hit the road

2000-2030: stop at Heatherbrae for dinner (McDonalds or Subway etc)

2100: arrive at camp Elim, assign cabins and set up for the night.



What do we do on camp?

The short two days we have is absolutely jam packed full of surfing, hanging out, eating, sleeping, and more surfing! Below is the schedule for the weekend.
