What is Wintercamp?

Wintercamp is our annual youth camp for high schoolers at Crossway. This is the spiritual high point of the youth ministry year, and a crucial week in our annual calendar. There will be opportunities for worship, team challenges and relevant biblical teaching from a guest speaker. It’s been said that a week of Wintercamp is worth the same in building relationship as an entire semester of Friday Night youth services. It’s a highlight that you certainly don’t want to miss.

School, exams, relationships, mental health, current events in our world – there are so many reasons why young people of today feel overwhelmed. In this elective, we will explore what it means to “cast all your anxieties to Him” and practice Godly mindfulness.

God has provided us with many powerful gifts. This elective will allow you to explore and nurture those gifts. It may be healing, prophecy, wisdom, understanding, leadership and many more. Come and join us as we explore what our giftings may be and how we can use them to honour God.

Friendships come and go. Relationships come and go. A+ achievements come and go. How do we deal with rejection in all different aspects on life? Whether that is on career, studies, relationships and/or friendships; this elective will take you on a panel for you to ask your own questions and the panelists to share their experiences!

Matthew. Mark. Luke. John. The 4 Gospels. This elective will provide you with a wealth of knowledge about the Gospels and their authors and helps them discover how the four Gospels were chosen, why and when they were written, where they overlap and how each is unique.

Everywhere you look, it seems as though the end is near. Is it? What does the Bible say? If you’ve ever wondered what will happen in the end times, this is the elective for you. In simple language, you’ll learn what the Bible says about the last days and why it matters to your life. 

The bible is sometimes hard to understand and is from so long ago, so how can we really trust what’s written in it? How do we understand the words written and the meanings with such a different world today? Together we’ll explore these questions to better understand the Word and what it means to us today!

Learn in this elective how to take portraits like a pro! We’ll look at techniques, lighting and everything needed to take great photos. No experience needed. Max 10 signups so get in quick!

Music fills our everyday lives and has so much power in the way it influences us and impacts our hearts and situations. Together we’ll be exploring how God used music to intercede in the Bible and how, through music, he does the same for us today. 

With so many controversial topics surrounding our lives and filling our conversations it can be hard to know how to navigate them well. Together we’ll look at a few tough topics and how we can be involved in these conversations and ultimately honour God!

Why do we live our lives as Christians? What’s the purpose of living differently to everyone else? What does it mean to ‘live in the world but not of the world’? Join us as we explore the Bible to answer these questions and find the kind of life Jesus has for us! 

Porn, lust, vaping, smoking, drinking and desiring music can all be so tempting. Jesus was tempted in the wilderness too but how can we resist this temptation in a modern world like today?

In this elective, we’ll explore how we can disciple others to Jesus and be the trending force in our lives! All around us, our friends and family are struggling through answering life’s big questions about relationships, mental health, gender, faith and more. We’ll chat through what it means to build disciples of nations and nations to come!

Prayer plays a huge part in our personal relationship with God and in the lives of others. So how should we pray? What does it look like? How does it make a difference? Join this elective to find out! 

Are you hearing from the Holy Spirit? Come join us in this elective for a more contemplative and reflective time to hear from God! 

Are you interested in learning how to teach and preach? How to share the truth about Jesus from the platform? Join this elective to work on your preaching skills and work towards our next CY Youth 2 Youth night!

Learn how to love and relate in a new way! Who is your soulmate? How do you know the person you’re with is the person for life? In this elective, you’ll look at entering relationships that glorify the Lord and possibly ways to have a W rizz.

Too often we treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world instead of trying to pinpoint the cause. A growing number of voices are pointing at hurry, or busyness as a root of much evil. Within this elective, you’ll find a compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favour of a slower, simpler way of life – being AFK.
