There will be one freewill offering taken up during the main service of the camp, being 11:00am Sabbath morning. It will be used for expenses toward the camp and assistance of the ministry of Autumn Leaves to continue the work it has developed and established here in New Zealand and further afield.

At the end of camp please make sure your belongings are taken from the lodge or bunkrooms by 1:00pm to allow for cleaning. Please also vacate the camp ground by 3:00pm, this saves holding up the staff and allows them to do a final check at a reasonable time too.
