WHAT WE DO
“Übertweak was the highlight of my year” – Camper
Übertweak is a camp run by Scripture Union Australia, a Christian not-for-profit organisation with a heart for youth and children. Each camp is run by a group of volunteer leaders, who are trained in child safety, and hold a Working with Children Blue Card issued by the Queensland State Government.
We aim to build a safe, supportive and inclusive community on every camp we run. All camps are drug and alcohol free. We have trained first-aid officers, and directors have additional training in emergency management. Directors always have their phones on them and can be contacted at any time throughout the week.
As part of Übertweak, campers are invited to participate in daily input sessions where we discuss issues that are relevant to them, and provide opportunities for them to ask questions about matters of faith and life. We also talk with the campers about the Bible and who Jesus is.
The location of Übertweak depends on the camp, but they all take place around Brisbane. We offer transport from Spring Hill (five minutes from the Brisbane CBD), but campers can also be dropped off at the campsite. You’ll receive a letter after registering that contains more details.
