“We love SU, what they do and want to support!”

“We want children and young people to have the best fun on camps and be safe. Creating safe places for children and young people is something we take seriously as does Scripture Union ACT. They use our ChildSafe tools services and training to help prevent harm and abuse. If you’re an organization working with children and young people, we’re here to help!”

“SU camps were really important for me as a teenager; great fun, great community and great opportunities to grow in faith.” -Peter Ehsman

Have generously donated prizes for this year!







Lake of Origin sees the Canberra Northside/ Southside conflict hit new levels!  Two teams will compete in an epic 24-hour contest raising awareness about the value of Scripture Union camping for young people.  Join the contest today by donating to make sure young people don’t miss out on the life-changing experience of camping!

Come and watch the fun and cheer on your team at Yarralumla Uniting Church, events will be from;
4pm – 8:30pm Friday 24th and again 10am – 4pm Saturday 25th (a timetable of events below)

If you own or know a Christian business that would like to support SU Camps, contact us to find out details.


SU camps are a great opportunity for young people to experience a fun, positive community where they can challenge themselves, reflect on their lives and explore the Christian faith.  Lake of Origin was the brainchild of people who had got so much out of camps themselves they wanted to make sure today’s young people don’t miss out.

Thank you for your support!
