From the minute your mates step off the plane onto Australian soil, they will find themselves on a trip they'll never forget!
The day begins at the Aussie Assembly, the thrilling opening complete with entertaining welcomes, "aus-some" songs, a mission moment, and prayer. Then we're off to four fun rotation sites:
Land Down Under Lessons
During the lesson time, our mates will unearth the value and wonder of all life created by God and for God.
Top Koala-Ty Treats
Mates will enjoy delicious “tucker” (food) at this much-anticipated stop.
Hoppin' Good Games
At this location, mates 'av a go (put in a good effort) at fun land and sea challenges or have a blast working as teams and trying out various physical challenges.
Turtle-Y Terrific Science & Crafts
Electrifying science experiments to explore, creative crafts to invent, high-energy songs to sing, fun memory verse games to play.
 
After finishing the day's rotations, everyone heads back to the Aussie Assembly for the closing that includes more singing, a creature feature, contest results, and the greatly anticipated daily drama.

There is no cost for attending or for the booklet. It is sponsored by First St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and Livingston Butler Volland Funeral Home and Cremation Center, plus money from a Thrivent Action Grant. GriefShare is not counseling.
