Changes to Registration – Day Visitor Registration
As an administrative team we are committed to doing all we can to safeguard every attendee during the Big Camp program. As a result we have been working with AdSAFE, the Child and Vulnerable Person Protection service for the Adventist Church to implement protocols to assist with mitigating risks during Conference wide events.
Starting this year, it will be our standard practice to require all Big Camp attendees to make application in advance. Day visitors, which include those assisting in roles as employees and volunteers on behalf of the conference but who are not staying on the camp ground, MUST register via the online registration link https://events.adventist.org.au/ew/app/registration/index.html?e=3402 .
Big Camp presents an identified heightened risk with thousands of people that are involved in temporary accommodation, bathing and toileting facilities and we are committed to assuring that each person, young and old can do so in safety.
Thank you for noting this change in camp attendee registration requirements. It’s going to be a great camp with inspiring messages and fun activities and we look forward to seeing you there.
