Church Group Camps
Acres of park and space for group meetings, gatherings and prayers. Take your group into the natural environment, enjoy the beauty and tranquility Lake Rotorua has to offer.
Keswick Camp is an ideal venue for Church camps and conferences - located in Rotorua.
If you are looking for a camp venue for between 25 and 250 people, then we have the place for you. Our facilities are spacious and tidy, and are sited on 6 acres of level parkland, ideal for outdoor games and activities.
Keswick has a large well-equipped auditorium seating up to 400 people, suited to larger groups who are looking for a worship or teaching venue. For those who want several smaller meeting areas, we also have a seminar room and several other smaller meeting rooms.
Situated only 10 minutes from the centre of Rotorua, Keswick is in close proximity to many places of interest for groups visiting the Rotorua area. Alternatively you may prefer instead to spend a relaxing afternoon on the shores of Lake Rotorua, only a short walk from the Camp, or enjoy watching your children play at the Keswick playground or at the nearby park playground.

A Little Background and History
From the beginning in 1875 the Convention at Keswick in the Lake District had its origin in the Moodey – Sankey evangelistic campaign in Britain and its aim “The deepening of spiritual life”.
It differs from the average bible conference in that its aims are not merely to impart Bible knowledge and be a spiritual uplift, but to be “A spiritual clinic where defeated and ineffective Christians may be restored to spiritual health”.
It stands for no particular brand of denominational theology. Its motto is “All One in Christ Jesus".
Our vision is still to be a “Spiritual Haven” and has no brand of denominational theology.
We welcome all churches to use our facilities and enjoy all that we have to offer.
Over the past few years we have accommodated Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, and Jewish, yep even New Zealanders, a whole range of denominations and a whole range of ages.
We have had a number of youth camps, Alpha groups, and men’s groups; in fact many a spiritual life has fanned the flame here at Keswick.
Join us and see if we can’t make a difference to your camps purpose.
