Introducing Christian Venues Association “Experience the spirit of sharing” Christian Venues Association operates as an association of over 245 Conference Centres, Camps, Activity/Service Providers and over 550 individual members operating in the School, Community, Charity and Church environments in all States.

What is the aim of the event? If you are clear about the aim of the event, other questions are more readily answered and issues are more effectively handled. Your aim should be clear and straightforward and understood by your event leadership team.

“Camping” “Serving and enabling Christian Ministries to provide unique temporary communities” Camping is an experience which provides an opportunity for a group of people, with a common interest, to come away from their usual environment and live in a “community” within which teaching and training can occur. This temporary “community” provides opportunities (of varying duration) for formal and informal learning, in accommodation ranging from comfortable Conference and Retreat Centre facilities to basic tenting.

Why are you having the event? It may be for spiritual growth, recreation and relaxation, social, skill development, specific training or adventure. • Has your promotion of the event outlined the purpose of the event? • Are the participant’s expectations in line with the organisers’ expectations?

Christian Venues Association Membership. As can be seen from this directory most of Australia is covered. Facilities range in size from 12 bed cottages to 890 bed complexes with meeting facilities that can cater for up to 5,000 at a time. There are over 25,000 beds available each night through member’s facilities and programs. The centres and activity providers are used; • by School Groups for excursions, outdoor education, religious retreats & study/peer group workshops; • by Church & Youth Groups for retreats, weekends away and workshops; and • by Corporate & Community Groups for workshops and training. All Member Centres are required to uphold a Statement of Faith. Christian Venues Association’s Role: As one of the largest “Camping” industry associations we assist our members to fulfil their mission and provide their facilities and services at economical prices. We also seek to improve standards of safety and service delivery through education, training and networking. In 2010 practical benefits of membership include: • this Australian Directory of Christian Conference Centres and Camps with an annual distribution of 19,000 to schools, churches, community & corporate groups and to individuals. • VenueFinder, our web based venue location service; www.venuefinder.com.au • Campfinder, our web based camp locater service - www.campfinder.com.au • access to an industry developed and Christian Venues Association endorsed accreditation program; National Accommodation, Recreation and Tourism Accreditation (NARTA Inc) • a website that provides members details and useful resources • a quarterly magazine • a fortnightly email newsletter • various purchasing benefits arranged through Christian Supply Chain Buying Group (CSCBG); www.cscbg.org.au • chaplaincy support • Member Development Days • an office that is staffed by people who understand “Camping”, and • access through Christian Venues Association to resources from other Christian Camping Associations around the world. For further details about Christian Venues Association and membership, please contact: Christian Venues Association National Office P O Box 5552 South Windsor NSW 2756 Telephone: (02) 4587 7155 Fax: (02) 4587 7933 Email: stg@christianvenues.org.au Website: www.christianvenues.org.au “Somewhere to Go” National Directory

For whom are you planning? • Number, age, interests, abilities, gender mix. • What can the participants contribute? What interests do the participants have that can be utilised? What values are you communicating? Serving others, co-operation, independence, sharing, personal management. What others? How long should the activity take? A day, a weekend, a week, the holiday period? The duration of the event should depend on your aim and the age and experience of the group as well as the time available. What are the location options? Fixed, mobile, fixed with short trips out. There can be hidden costs in day trips (travel and entrance fees) while often the beach and the bush at or near the venue can provide excellent opportunities for creative organisers. How much will it cost? Can you afford it? Key budget items include accommodation, transport, catering, admission fees, contingencies, and equipment hire. Venue fees vary enormously depending on what you want, the location, numbers and the style of the facilities. Give clear, precise information about your group (dates, size, requirements); get a clear indication of the cost. How will the group be structured? Whole group, small groups, mix of these. Go back to your aim - what are you trying to achieve? Are there benefits in having your group take responsibility for part of the program and organisation? Can they sometimes work in small groups as well as the full group? What are the safety issues? Organisers are bound under a duty of care to ensure that all activities are conducted in safety for the participants.

does not mean that the activity should not go ahead if there is an element of risk, but that all risks have been assessed and either eliminated or reduced to acceptable levels. Organisers have available to them many methods of assessing their programs and venues. All venues should be able to provide copies of their own emergency plans and risk analyses if requested. Some centres will have obtained accreditation from other agencies. One such agency is the Christian Venues Association endorsed accreditation program – the National Accommodation, Recreation and Tourism Accreditation (NARTA Inc) program. All safety planning is best started well before it’s likely to be needed. Ensure those conducting activities are appropriately trained or experienced. Ensure you (and the venue) have information about local emergency services. Remember your responsibilities to provide first-aid if necessary. Who will lead the activity? How will you use your leadership team? Are you, the leadership team and other campers clear about the roles and responsibilities of the leaders? Who on your team has training and specialist skills that may be required? How can you best utilise the various personalities in your team? Do they clearly understand their legal and moral responsibilities? Will the participants ‘participate’? • Will you seek ideas and input from the campers well beforehand? • Will you respond to their ideas and needs? Participant input can occur when you are planning as well as carrying out the activity. What are the threads you need to draw together? • Transport, finance, catering, accommodation, equipment, training, leaders. What else? • Have you evaluated all the options? (e.g. 2 day versus 5 day: catered versus self-catered) Will there be a balance of activities? Action/reflection, group/single, organised/casual, leader directed/camper input. How will you ‘sell and tell’ the idea? Some activities suffer from insufficient notice and planning. There often needs to be time to enthuse, gradually building up to precise details of event. When do you start? As early as possible. Talk to other organisers; seek ideas; make bookings well in advance; review the sequence of steps you’ll need to go through; give everybody adequate notice.

The attention of advertisers is drawn to the Trade Practices Act 1974 and the provisions in the Act which applies to advertising. It is not possible for Christian Camping International Australia to ensure that advertisements which are published in this directory comply in all respects with the Act and the responsibility must therefore be on the person, company or advertising agency submitting the advertisement for publication.
