Tyson dips his toes into the waters of faith
Your support for SU is giving children and young people opportunities to discover life, and find their place in God’s big story through ministries like Camp Odyssey.
Taking place on the pristine waters of Geographe Bay, south-west of Perth, SU Australia’s Camp Odyssey includes a week of sailing, conquering challenges, learning new skills, and an epic race day to cap it off.
In addition to the high-octane action-packed adventures, campers also learn more about the God who rules the wind and waves, while hanging out with old friends and making new ones too.
It truly is a week where lifetime memories are made, says camp leader Jodi.
“During the week we have some great conversations with young people about life, faith, meaning and purpose – and you can see God working in the minds and hearts of the campers.
“One camper I spoke to, Tyson* who doesn’t come from a Christian family, shared with me that he felt his faith was like standing at the edge of the pool and dipping his toes in. We got to explore that more together. It’s inspiring to see his hunger to learn more about Jesus and understand his place in that bigger picture of life,” says Jodi.
Through your support, young people like Tyson are engaging in conversations around faith through camps like Odyssey, and other SU ministries around Australia. Thank you for making this possible. You can keep this vital work going – visit the links below to find out more.
