Junior Camp Leaders Application

We will pray about all applications to discern who we believe God desires to be a leader and will get back to applicants closer to the Camp.




"Jesus 4 Real camps engage young people allowing the young people to encounter the person of Jesus Christ. The community created during Jesus 4 Real is the foundation of lifelong friendships, and a solid base for finding a home in a Church which often struggles to relate to young people. The young adults I've worked with who have been to Jesus 4 Real, have shown dedication and commitment to living their faith, and are an asset to the faith community."

Dan Siave, Leader Young Church Ministries, Archdiocese of Wellington

"Jesus 4 Real Camps are well worth attending, young people speak very highly of their experience and are given a real love of Jesus through the camps, which in turn enables them to be involved in the life of Christ's Church. Jesus 4 Real camps give young people the chance to hear the invitation of Pope Francis where he says; "I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since "no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord". Evangelii Gaudium 3

Archbishop John Dew, Archdiocese of Wellington
