Big Camp 2013
'Big Camp' is a colloquial term for the annual convention of the NNSW Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. This event is held each year at the Seventh-Day Adventist Convention Centre in Stuarts Point, NSW. It's a 10-day event filled with music, worship, inspirational speakers and activities for all ages. This event is run for members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the NNSW Conference.
Big Camp for 2013 was held from 19 to 27 April. This was a return to the traditional Friday evening until the following Sabbath evening length for the Big Camp program. You can read more about Big Camp 2013 in the June issue of NorthPoint.
