EMC Update – Fire at Elim Heights

Dear EMC Students and Families,

You may have heard on social media that there was a bushfire at Elim Heights Youth Camp, which is located adjacent to the Wollemi National Park. Elim Heights is used for part of the Missionary Training Program for Elim Missionary College. The fire impact to the campground was severe and several structures were destroyed.

At this stage we do not anticipate any interruption to the EMC program on account of the fire. We are grateful to God that all of the essential buildings and equipment that are normally used by EMC were preserved. Further, the administrative committee of the campground will be ensuring that the site is clean and safe prior to any future events.

For those who may be concerned about student safety, particularly those from overseas who are not familiar with the landscape and weather of Australia, we would like to reassure you that the safety of students and teachers is our first priority. The national park will now be as safe as possible from the threat of future bushfires for the remainder of the season, with vast tracts of land already having been burnt.

In the coming weeks, work will be taking place to ensure the safety of the campus and EMC is looking forward to running the first month of our program on this iconic and peaceful location.

Looking forward to seeing you all in February.

The Elim Missionary College Board
