To provide a safe, fun environment where people experience growth in heart, mind, body and soul through camping activities infused with Christian faith and values
Our desire is to create an atmosphere where positive change can happen. Teapot Valley strives to be a place where people can retreat to a caring, service-oriented atmosphere as they advance in personal development through the experiences camp has to offer.
To continually explore fresh opportunities of achieving our major purpose, adapting our methods to the changing needs of groups and individuals, optimizing the usage of our facilities and having an open mind and heart to the will of God for the development of this work, both in NZ and overseas.
How to get to Camp
From Nelson head south on Highway 6. Carry on through Richmond and onto Brightwater. At the Brightwater Motor Inn turn right onto Ellis Road and continue for 3km crossing over the Wai-iti river and turning left at the big right hand sweeping bend onto Teapot Valley Road. We are 2km down the road on the right.
From south of Nelson heading north on Highway 6. After Wakefield watch out for the Rutherford memorial just before Brightwater on the left. Continue past this to the next intersection. There is a school on the left and the Brightwater Motor Inn on the right. Turn left onto Ellis Road and continue for 3km crossing over the Wai-iti river and turning left at the big right hand sweeping bend onto Teapot Valley Road. We are 2km down the road on the right.
If you are coming from the south some GPS devices will direct you down Barton Lane. Do not go this way as there is limited access across the river and up the paper road to camp.
