What is a SWAT Camp?
SWAT is an acronym for Spiritual Weapons and Training. SWAT Camp is an annual event which brings together young people from all over Australia with one common goal; training and equipping young adults for the ministry. SWAT Camp was established in 2006 and has been held annually (sometimes biannually) since that time. SWAT Camp will be hosted by Mt. Cathedral Community Baptist Church (independent). For more information please contact Daniel Kriss (details at bottom of page).

What can I expect at SWAT Camp?
Previous SWAT Camp attendees will attest to the blessings found in being immersed in teaching from God’s Word every day. Traditionally the SWAT Camp consists of two chapel services and two seminars each day. Typically the chapel services include a praise and testimony component followed by sound, challenging preaching by the keynote speaker. The seminars usually comprise of an interactive teaching lesson presented by a visiting guest speaker. The second seminar is usually a ‘split session’ where a ‘gender-specific’ topic is related to the ladies and gentleman separately.
A number of other unique activities form an integral part of a SWAT Camp. These include: public evangelism in a local area, opportunity for a number of young men to prepare a message and preach at a chapel service, hikes and sporting activities, sharing testimonies publicly, working bees and much more.
Probably the best part of SWAT Camp is the opportunity for young people around this nation to come together in one place and enjoy the sweet fellowship that can be had where there is a likeness of mind and vision! See for yourself.
