Our Staff

Meet the wonderful people who make CCNZ happen!





Jenni Davies - CEO

Jenni is committed to growing Kiwi kids into leaders for New Zealand, for both community and church. Since 2008 Jenni has been the CEO of Christian Camping, but her passion began as a child participating with her family in tent evangelism crusades and outreaches in mining communities. In 1986 Jenni and her husband Wayne (along with their two daughters) became the directors of Lake Taupo Christian Camp. Over 23 years they were instrumental in growing the site from a cabin block and dining room, to a full outdoors and conference centre, eventually extending their camp by restoring a satellite site, Ruapehu Christian Camp.
Jenni is also the current Vice-Chairperson for the Intellectually Handicapped Society (Taupo), and both herself and Wayne volunteer with a local social group for those with disabilities. Jenni believes that every person wants to do something to improve another person's life and that Christian Camping offers people the opportunity to effect change in their world.

Helen Robertson

I have been involved in CCNZ for nearly 10 years in the role of Office Manager and Finance. As of January 2018, I will be reducing my hours and just doing the Accounting role of 2 days per week. On a personal level, I have three daughters and five grandchildren and have been married to Bruce for 2 ½ years. My passion is for youth to come to Christ and I firmly believe that God brought me to this role in Christian Camping and I am grateful for this period of my life to be able to contribute to our mission, if not directly, but through accounting and managing the finances.
