Youth Leadership

Leaders Retreat

Leaders Retreat

7pm Sunday 17th - 11am Tuesday 19th December

This event is especially for our Kids Camp leaders to kick back, relax and enjoy being at camp for themselves.

Friends of leaders are welcome, as long as they don't mind long swims in the pool, floating down the river or endless hang outs beside the camp fire.

We all know the best time to be at El Rancho is during the summer ... so we have all the chill summer vibes coming your way! 

The price to attend camp is $80.00 and includes all food, activities and your canteen order of course.

Christian Youth Camps and Conferences on the sunny Kāpiti Coast

Our Youth Leadership programme is all about us investing in you.

At the start of each of our school holiday kids camps, our leaders arrive a couple of days prior to experience:
  • Live worship
  • Exciting activities
  • Leadership development
  • Great food and much more!
El Rancho is greatly committed to supporting the local church by equipping youth. Just as much as kids love to come to camp, our youth are also greatly impacted by the leadership training and events we facilitate for them. They go back to their homes and communities refreshed, excited, and passionate about making an impact.
