Focus is a chance for our church network to spend quality time together; to pitch in as a family, sharing food, receiving and praying for one another, and supporting each other as we go.

Focus happens because hundreds of dedicated volunteers offer their time to help it run as smoothly as possible. 

Whether you love taking photos, welcoming people or have a knack of making little ones laugh, there are heaps of opportunities to get involved. There are also great perks including free or discounted tickets (depending on the hours you are serving).

Apply below and we'll be in touch. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Town planners

Are you an experienced, proactive camper who loves the great outdoors? 

Town planners are the go-to person for your church’s camping area for the week. As a town planner, you are responsible for scoping out your church area ahead of arrival to ensure everyone who has booked to camp with your church fits comfortably and safely within the space provided. You will take the lead as your church family arrive with their tents, pointing them in the right direction to their pitch for the week and troubleshooting if issues arise. Being available to provide practical support come rain or shine is a must, and experience tells us you’ve got to be full of energy and up for a challenge.

If you are interested in being the town planner for your church, please contact your church office directly to apply. They will issue you with a promo code for the booking system to discount your booking accordingly.
