Getaway Leaders Info

Thanks for taking the time to check out why you should become a getaway leader.


  • Children are sponsored to attend by the Lions club
  • Activities and leaders are sponsored by local churches, individuals and Camp Elim
  • This camp is held  for 1 week over the April and just over 1 week over the October school holidays
  • This camp has been running for around 25 years
  • This is a great opportunity to make a difference in the life of kids from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • You will learn how to use the Bible to teach important life skills to kids

Who can be a leader:

  • Anyone who is keen to use the Bible to make a difference in kids lives
  • People of all ages are great to have on the team. Younger leaders will usually spend a lot of time with the kids, while older leaders will usually play more of a support role.
  • Different ages relate differently to the children, so it is great to have a diverse team. We don’t want a team with just young people, or a team with just old people. All ages are valuable.
  • Families may even decide to come on mission together. One adult must be on team the whole time. Children from the family may choose to participate in the activities with the lions club kids if they are in year 4-9. Older children from the family may help leaders out. Family members who are not leaders will need to pay discounted camp rates – contact Elim to find out the cost.
