Church Groups

Church family camps and church youth camps are a large part of our valued client base with many returning to Arura year after year. At Arura, leaders can forget having to change a dining room into a chapel after each meal! Our separate conference room is away from kitchen and dining room noise and disruptions, seats up to 100 persons, and has excellent acoustics making the ideal venue for worship or study.

Family camps are very popular at Port Hughes. Besides the handy beaches and the area’s natural attractions, Arura’s bedroom set up appeals. Families can be allocated their own bedroom and have privacy when needed. The grounds and play areas keep the smaller children amused while our conference room provides the place for worship and study. Families with caravans are welcome to use our powered sites and still be involved with the group for meals, worship and fellowship.

Youth camps are where fun is had, friendships formed, and life long memories are made! A young couple recently returned here for their wedding ceremony and reception, after first meeting at a youth camp here at Port Hughes several years before. Youth groups find the facilities at Arura readily adapt to their needs, plus there is night beach hikes, camp fire, BBQs, and loads of fun and games opportunities. Bring your sound and lighting! Our activities/sports shed has been set up with stunning effect as the venue for larger events when staging is needed. Additional seating is available.

Thinking about a youth camp? You and your committee are most welcome to visit to assist your planning. We can help you with the details!
