The committee would like to send a big thank you to all those campers who have registered so far. You are in for a great time when January 6th 2020 rolls around.
If you have mates who are still unsure about whether or not to register, print them off a newsletter, ttps://boys.brigadeaustralia.org/events/pan-australian-camps or show them our BB PAC 20 YouTube channel that is showing short videos of past Pan Australian Camps. We know cost can play a part in weather you can attend camp, and our suggestion would be to contact your company captain to find out if your company has done some fundraising.
But whatever you do, don’t forget that registration closes on 31st October 2019. Elective preferences also need to be chosen by this date as well. Registrations after the closing date will be considered on a case-bycase basis. Doing this will allow the committee time to finalise many aspects of the camp such as camp shirts and hats, accommodation, activities, catering, transport and so much more. Amongst all that, the committee needs to fit in Christmas with their families and maybe a short holiday too.
So if you know of someone sitting on the fence about registering for camp, or you know of someone who has been meaning to register for camp, tell them to do it now.
Cheers – Ben H
We are celebrating 20 Pan Australia Camps over 57 years in 2020. As with any big celebration, you want to invite your family. Boys’ Brigade’s sister organisation, Girls’ Brigade will be joining us for some of the 20th Pan Australia Camp. The last time GB shared an activity with BB at a PAC was in 2002 when Brigaders welcomed in the New Year in a joint celebration.
The Girls Brigade are running their own national camp in 2020 called Fonomarae, or Fono for short that is also based at Stanwell Tops, although in different buildings in a different part of the site.
For most of their camp, Girls Brigade will be following their own camp program.
But we can’t let such a great opportunity pass and so the BB PAC 20 program committee have discussed with BG Fono committee to include a few activities for the brother and sister Brigades to share.
We are currently looking to have all Brigaders come together for worship and celebration on certain nights during the camp. Who doesn’t love a big full bodied worship experience.
Since brother and sister Brigades are staying at Stanwell tops, it also made sense that they join together for onsite activities. Nothing like a bit of friendly competition to keep everyone motivated.
Register + pay all money by 31 October 2019.
