" Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to

you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them,

that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this

you will save both yourself and those who hear you."  1 Timothy 4:13-16  NKJV

Busselton Christian Brethren Camp

 

The Busselton Christian Brethren Campsite has long been a favourite getaway spot for Perth families and small groups. The site is basic which definitely adds to its charm and relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of shade and a safe beach at the sites back fence means families come back year after year. Bookings are for individual tent or caravan sites at all times of the year, plus small groups up to 60 persons with use of the kitchen and dorms etc...

 

There is a boat launching ramp close by for the fisherperson and jet skier, and you have all the South-West has to offer in easy reach for day trips. Nestled in Geographe Bay, Busselton has been a popular holiday spot for West Australians since the 1890s. Beautiful beaches, excellent fishing, caves, coastline scenery, unspoiled bushland surrounds are all in close proximity. Busselton is one of West Australia's earliest settlements. The Busselton Jetty Underwater Observatory 2 kms from shore is a simply massive fish bowl, with a wide staircase covering three levels, down to a depth of some 8 metres below sea level.

A brief history of the Busselton Christian Brethren Campsite - It was all hands on deck in 1970. A local farmer rattled in from 20 miles away on his trusty tractor and ploughed a track through the undergrowth to make a driveway into the newly leased bush block. A site was cleared and the old Osmington School building was eased through the Peppy trees and onto the stumps. Then began the Saturday tradition, where local and visiting brothers & sisters in Christ would roll up their sleeves and just get on with it! The building was repaired and painted and prettied up. BBQs and picnics were the only option for keeping the gang fed, but everyone loved that, especially all the kids ...a big feed then a swim, what more could you ask for. Cement bricks were hand made, then used to build the ablution block.

 

A well, 2 metres square x 4 metres deep was hand dug and boarded to supply fresh water, and a home for enormous frogs that sent children screaming when they dropped from their hiding spot under the toilet seat! During the cooler months, when the burning season began, there would be little fires blazing away that needed regular stoking. As we all know a deadline is a wonderful motivator to getting tasks finished, and what better motivation could there be than a wedding!. In February 1971 Shirley Smith was married to Les Saxey in the very hall that they and others had so diligently worked on. What a grand occasion with which to christen the little chapel. From this time on more buildings were acquired and transported onto site by jinker, made possible by the generous hand of Len Ravenscroft, owner of Leonards Jinker Service, who gifted machinery, tools and workers to make this possible.

 

The Dining Room/Kitchen was formerly a Dental Clinic on the MHAS Leeuwin Barracks, Perth. The first dormitory was from the Railway Siding in Tutunup, and the second dormitory building came from the Immigration Centre in Bicton. A new bore was drilled. A few years later a generous gift to the campsite enabled the acquisition of a caretakers home, and the construction of a second ablution block. And so it has continued for the last 40 or so years, willing hands and generous hearts have enabled the campsite to offer a quiet retreat by the beach in one of WAs most desirable destinations.
