About

About our facility, history and why we exist.

Riverbend Youth Centre is a camp site administered by the Christian Brethren Churches of Circular Head and is situated 6km south of Smithton on Trowutta Road in a beautiful riverside setting. The centre consists of a large complex which holds our commercial size kitchen, indoor basketball and table games area, chapel, meeting room and dormitory style accommodation. Outside of our main building, we have further accommodation options with flats and a house, water-slide, flying fox, oval and tennis court.

Riverbend is a Brethren run campsite dedicated to reaching youth for Christ. It has been running camps since 1970, staffed largely by volunteer leaders. It is administered by a Board and currently has 1 couple working onsite. It is capable of accommodating 149 people and caters for all types of camps and conferences.

The Riverbend Bookshop, which began in the campsite itself, is now located in the main street of Smithton and provides a wide variety of Christian resources including music, fiction, gift lines, cards and Bible Study materials.
