Mylor Adventure Camp 1957 – 2017
Last November, more than 500 members of the community, general public and distinguished guests gathered to celebrate 60 years of Baptist Care SA’s Mylor Adventure Camp.
‘Mylor Baptist Camp’ as it was formerly known was established by the Baptist Churches of South Australia “so that young people can come to know the God we love,” said Paul Madden, Past CEO, Baptist Community Services (SA) Inc.
The sixtieth Anniversary event was a celebration of the camp’s transformational past and exciting future. The proceedings began with a Thanksgiving Service in the Chapel followed by a fun-filled Open Day with activities for young and old including the Giant Swing, High Ropes, treasure hunts, information sessions, site tours and a ‘Memory Corner’ display.
“Mylor Adventure Camp truly provides and facilitates a wonderful space and opportunity for young people to gather and to connect with God and each other” affirmed Sam Whitwell, Youth Pastor for Rostrevor Baptist Church who held their Youth Camp there for the first time in September. “We had a wonderful weekend filled with vibrant worship, impacting teaching, deep small groups, excellent activities, authentic community and of course, great food”.
“And now it’s embedded in the lives of so many people in Adelaide” continued Tobin Hanna, Senior Manager Adventure with Baptist Care SA. “There are four things that capture what happens here.
- We facilitate extraordinary camps and outdoor experiences that challenge, stretch and grow people
- We’d like to work with Churches to continue to offer a place where young people are challenged by God
- We want people to come as part of a group and leave as part of a community
- We aim to deliver outdoor therapeutic programs that develop and build a young person’s sense of purpose, confidence and wellbeing
Mylor Adventure Camp is a great place for Youth Group camps and Church retreats. It’s a place to build and strengthen relationships. Come as a group, leave as a community.”
Camps can be self-catered or fully catered. The Riverview Retreat Centre is also a great option for a Leaders retreat.
