We have increased the cost of camp per child to $160, (if this is problem please get in touch with us at camp and we can help where we can).

These camps normally start at 7pm on Sunday and finish at 7pm on the following Thursday. The children stay at the camp for the period, all meals are provide, but if your child has a dietary requirement, please get in touch with us prior to the camp and we will endevour to cater for them.


Peter Snell Youth Village is an interdenominational Christian Camp owned and operated by the NZ Sunday School Union. All programmes are conducted under the supervision of the Camp Manager, assisted by programme directors and a team of leaders.
