We’re looking forward to seeing you at Interns Camp 2024

When: April 3-7

-Registration starts at 4pm Wednesday April 3. Dinner is at 6pm. We conclude Sunday April 7 at 10am (Please make note of these times when making travel arrangements).

Venue: Camp Howqua

This year we are at Camp Howqua. Which is a wonderful Adventist facility just 2.5 hours from Melbourne Airport in Mansfield (Victorian High Country).

Address: 127 Howqua River Rd, HOWQUA VIC 3723



Please Register Below – at the bottom of this page (Please register before March 4).

Here you will be able to enter your flights, let us know about special dietary needs and if your spouse is coming.

Intern’s camp 2024 is for all Interns on Pathway 1. For those on Pathways 2 and 3 your conference will make the choice re your attendance – talk to your Ministerial Secretary.


Spouse Attendance:

You are very welcome to have your spouse join you.  We will have some discussion times just for partners and time for the two of you to chat or go for a long walk around the wonderful grounds.  Most of the discussion times will be great for your spouse to join you in.


This is not a family camp so if you have children and if your spouse is joining us then you will need to make arrangements for child care during the time of camp (we do allow babies that need mum for feeding). This will allow you and your spouse to spend extra time together.


While the AUC will cover accommodation and meals for you and your spouse, travel to Melbourne is a Conference cost.  Some conferences are covering the cost of your spouse to travel to intern’s camp while others are not able to. Check with your Ministerial Secretary on this one.


Howqua is about 2.5 hours, by car, from the Melbourne airport.  We will be grouping people into hire cars/shuttle vans on the Wednesday and again to return to the airport on the Sunday.  Please talk with your Ministerial Secretary regarding the travel plan for your conference. If flying then book your travel to get into Melbourne on the Wednesday between 10am and 2pm.  For return flights a Sunday afternoon booking (after 2pm) will work best.  In some cases you may need to arrive or depart at earlier or later times – we will work with you on how best to get you from Melbourne to Howqua.


All bedding and towels are provided.


Dress is neat casual for meetings.  You will also need appropriate clothes for walking and activities. 


The programme includes presentations (from excellent pastors/leaders/partners in ministry) and discussion times on various topics including:

  • Balancing Family and Church
  • Blind-spots in Ministry
  • Ministry for the Long Haul – Finishing Well
  • What your President is after from you?
  • What an Effective Internship looks like
  • Church Life Issues
  •  Plus More – – We will have time for a bit of down time in the afternoons and enjoy a relaxing Sabbath in an incredible part of the world.

If you have any further questions get in contact with your Ministerial Secretary.

We’re looking forward to a wonderful few days with you

(AUC Ministerial Team)
