About KCO

KCO is an overnight camp for kids who are 7 years old to in Year 7. It is a major Uniting Church SA event attracting over a thousand people. KCO aims to assist kids to explore faith through their own discovery, encouraging sharing and relationships with their peers. At KCO kids enjoy a wide range of performances, activities, games, worship and music, based around a central theme. The theme aims to teach the campers about Jesus' life and teachings, in a manner that is understandable, appropriate to their context and, of course, incredibly fun.
