Foxton Bible Camp was established in 1961 primarily to facilitate an annual Family Camp. Since then our camping programme has enlarged to include a series of Youth Camps in the School holidays. We firmly believe in the value of a camping programme for spiritual encouragement and the strengthening of ties of fellowship among the people of God. This Christian emphasis remains our priority, but community groups are also able to hire the Camp.


The grounds have been developed to enable camps to be contained on-site if they wish. The local area is also ideal for camps. The ocean beach is less than a half hour walk from Camp and the river estuary only minutes away. The Manawatu River Estuary draws visitors keen to see the 2000 birds and up to 58 species known to flock there over the northern winter and is a stopover for many rare and migratory birds.


Foxton township is being developed as an historical town and offers horse-drawn tram and trolley bus rides, Dutch windmill, flax museum, and an Audiovisual Museum. modern carpet factory. Foxton Beach School is the site of an astronomical observatory. Information on local items of interest is available from the Information Centre (Ph: 06- 363 8940).
