Over the Labour Day long weekend CSNZ hosted a camp at Raglan with around 40-50 people coming and going over the course of the weekend.
The surf was not looking good for the weekend, but people still committed to camping out on our new but primitive campsite.
This time last year we had 50+ people come and put their hands to the plough and build the campsite. They moved boulders, built a shed, 2 long drops, 2 working showers, a fire pit, stairs down to the fire and a road all the way down to the campsite.
So this Labour Day weekend we came to enjoy the hard work from last year. We all surfed and skated during the day, come evening we all cooked food and sat around the fire, played games, had a burma trail, watched a surf film and sung worship songs around the fire.
The surf was average but everyone made the most of it and had great times hooting each other into waves. Monday morning the conditions changed and the waves were amazing! Barely anyone in the water and the waves stayed good all day!
It was great to gather together and be encouraged by one another - thanks Lord for an awesome weekend!
