For the past 30 years, CRU has been transforming young lives with the gospel through its various camping and school-based ministries. This mission work is supported by its purpose-built camp and conference centres located at Galston and Lake Macquarie.

You will also spend around 65 nights on camp and 55 days in training each year, as well as support other ministry areas through administration and site maintenance.
