In a recent magazine article our Director of Camping, Andrew Grant, wrote “one thing that has fascinated and challenged me recently is that the deep and continued goodwill towards camping from people across generations is somewhat dampened by a sense that life has crowded in and made camping less achievable’.
He went on to say ‘I’m confident that camping retains a great relevance to modern life. Our role is to make camping accessible to ensure the potential of camping is unleashed in the lives of people.’
Over the last year we’ve spent a lot of time and made a lot of progress in assessing what we have in QCCC, and how we can grow and expand our services, and more importantly grow our ability to service camping and conferencing in our State.
Some of these involve some left-of-field thinking, where we’ve taken an innovative approach to push the envelope and broaden horizons, delivering camps with a difference.
Over the next few weeks we’ll throw out some ideas ideas we have for the future in an attempt to find churches, schools and groups to consider partnering with us in some pilots. We’d like to soft-start some of these ideas with innovative partners to make sure they can work. After review and trouble-shooting we can then offer them to a wider audience.
