Established by the Baptist Churches of South Australia, ‘Mylor Baptist Camp’ as it was formerly known, has consistently provided an inspiring opportunity for people to learn, experience and enjoy the great outdoors. The sixtieth Anniversary event was a celebration of the camp’s transformational past and exciting future.
The proceedings began with a Thanksgiving Service in the Chapel followed by a fun-filled Open Day with activities for young and old including the Giant
Swing, High Ropes, treasure hunts, information sessions, site tours and a ‘Memory Corner’ display.

"Mylor Adventure Camp truly provides and facilitates a wonderful space and opportunity for young people to gather and connect with God and each other,”
affirmed Sam Whitwell, Youth Pastor for Rostrevor Baptist Church who held their Youth Camp there for the first time in September.
“We had a wonderful weekend filled with vibrant worship, impacting teaching, deep small groups, excellent activities, authentic community and of course, great food.”
Allan Priest, past Chair, Baptist Care (SA) Inc, also spoke at the Thanksgiving Service.
“It was 1955, just ten years after the end of World War II. There was a growing awareness of the challenge to be faced in nurturing this new generation and the possibilities associated with Christian camping had just begun to be widely recognised. Key leaders of the South Australian Baptist family of Churches became aware that this property had come on to the market."
“And now it’s embedded in the lives of so many people here in Adelaide,” continued Tobin Hanna, Senior Manager Adventure with Baptist Care SA.
“There are four things that capture what happens here.
- We facilitate extraordinary camps and outdoor experiences that challenge, stretch and grow people
- We’d like to work with Churches to continue to offer a place where young people are challenged by God
- We want people to come as part of a group and leave as part of a community
- We aim to deliver outdoor therapeutic programs that develop and build a young person’s sense of purpose, confidence and wellbeing.”
