About the organisation

Organisation Name : The Crusader Union of Australia (CRU)

CRU® is a Bible-based, interdenominational Christian youth organisation whose mission is to help the students of the independent schools of Australia to know and follow Jesus. We work towards this purpose using 3 core ministry strategies:

  • CRU Holiday Camps - residential and day camps for school students during school holidays on both the east coast and in Perth;
  • CRU Educational Camps - fully programmed camps for school year groups during term times; and
  • Schools Ministry - encouraging and supporting Christian groups and speaking in school chapels and assemblies on both the east coast and Perth.

This ministry is underpinned by administrative support, and by the operation of two Camp and Conference Centres at Galston and Lake Macquarie, where students and campers can enjoy a fantastic camp experience while at the same time grow in their faith.
