What: Easter Camp is an annual event where young people and families gather and experience friendship and inspiring talks and discussions, while expressing and learning more about Christian Science.

Cost: We have been blessed by a number of very generous donations, and as such we are able to offer the following pricing:

  • Adult (18+ & not studying full-time): $160
  • Student (full-time, regardless of age): $100
  • Pre-schooler (0-4): $50
However, the full cost of Easter Camp is as follows:
  • Adult (18+ & not studying full-time): $420
  • Student (full-time, regardless of age): $360
  • Pre-schooler (0-4): $170
and if you are in a position to pay more we ask that you do so.
*The fees are in Australian dollars, so they are very much in Americans' favor.

Travel Information: Easter camp will begin at 4pm on Friday 7 April. We anticipate we will have a bus at Melbourne airport to meet those traveling from interstate between 1pm and 3pm. The Camp site is approximately one hour from Melbourne airport. The camp concludes at 2pm on Tuesday 11 April.
If travelling to Victoria from interstate, please look for flights that arrive before 1pm on 7/4 and that leave after 6pm on 11/4.
Additional Information: Campers under the age of 14 should attend with a close adult relative, unless they have attended previous Easter Camps, or have demonstrated previous experience of attending Camps independently.
Easter Camp participants play a vital role co-creating a supportive and inclusive environment for everyone regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. As Mary Baker Eddy writes on page 13 of Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Love is impartial and universal in its adaptation and bestowals.”
