The Uniting Church in Tasmania's KUCA Campout aims to provide:
KCO is not designed to be a stand alone event. We work alongside those who work with children throughout the year in local churches and schools and in conjunction with the Presbytery Ministers in the Presbytery of Tasmania. We hope that churches/schools can celebrate and hear about the children's experiences after the event.
