How long have you attended Fishing & Diving Camp?
I’ve been attending Fishing & Diving Camp for two years.

How did you find out about Fishing & Diving Camp?
My friends and I heard great stories from Bill Evans about Fishing & Diving Camp and how it’s really fun, so we talked about coming when we were old enough.

What did you most enjoy about Fishing & Diving Camp?
I most enjoyed catching fish, sharing God’s word with friends, and meeting new people from all over the state.

If you could change 1 thing about Fishing & Diving Camp, what would it be?
Absolutely nothing! This camp is great just the way it is.

What did you learn about God, Jesus & the Bible at Fishing & Diving Camp?
I learned about the truth of God, and that he loves us, through our great speaker. He taught us about listening to the truth, and checking the truth. Also talking about the gospel and how life isn’t about us. I also learned about the challenges we face in this world.

What was you favourite meal at Fishing & Diving Camp?
I really enjoyed the roast we had on the last day. It was great.

In what way did Fishing & Diving Camp challenge you?
Fishing & Diving Camp challenged me to think about my life on Earth, and how it is about loving everyone, including your enemies. It also helped me realise that there are many temptations, and things people will do to take you away from God, so we need to remember and be reminded that God loves us, and he will never stop loving us.

Did you make any new friends at Fishing & Diving Camp?
I have made heaps of new friends since my first Camp. Everyone is really friendly and lots of fun.

How did the leaders demonstrate God's love to you?
The leaders demonstrated God's love by telling their stories about how they became a Christian, and the challenges they faced. It helped us because it gives us good motivation to tell people about God, and to keep believing. They also showed their love by making us feel safe, by attending to our needs, and cooking amazing food for us. They also showed love by teaching us good fishing tips and tricks.

What is your lasting memory of Fishing & Diving Camp?
My lasting memory of Fishing & Diving Camp is all the new friends that I made, the fun we had fishing and learning about God’s great love.

2016 was my first year. I heard about it from friends and thought it would be good to go with them.

Fishing, but also learning about God and meeting new Christian friends. I most enjoyed snorkelling under the jetty… there were massive stingrays!

What did you learn about God, Jesus & the Bible at Fishing & Diving Camp?
I learnt that we need to tell people about God and never leave anyone not knowing who God is and what he has done for them.

Did you make any new friends at Fishing & Diving Camp?
Yes and I’m glad to know that there are other Christians out there.

How did the leaders demonstrate God’s love to you?
By simply coming and giving up their time to tell me about Jesus.

What is your lasting memory of Fishing & Diving Camp?
Spending time with leaders and senior campers.

I have been at Fishing & Diving (FAD) camp for one year. The reason I found out was one of my friends’ parents used to be a leader at the camp, then they told my other friends and I about it and we all thought that it would be a great opportunity for all of us.

The three things that I most enjoyed about FAD was going fishing with all my friends and new friends (that was always fun). Also, doing studies so that we can learn more about God, the studies helped me.
