What is dcypher
A camp run by gamers for gamers
DCYPHER is a 4 day camp for those who love their computer a little too much! We set up a network and game each night until the wee hours of the morning. During the day we have various challenges and activities that will put your mind (and sometime body) to the test.
The camp is run by an organisation called Scripture Union (SU) Tasmania. SU is a Christian organisation that runs camps/school programs for youth and families in over 130 countries. DCYPHER has been running in Tassie for over 15 years and the staff and leaders come from all over the state to make it happen.
What sort of things will we be doing?
Each night we’ll be playing games such as TF2, Xonotic, Mindustry and TrackMania (all free!). We also get into some weird and wonderful board games that you’re unlikely to buy from your local Kmart/Big W.
Will there be religious stuff
Not if we can help it…
The camp is run and supervised by Christians from different churches around the state. Each of these guys believes its really important to think for yourself about what you value in life and also what you believe. A small part of DCYPHER (about 30mins) is set aside to have a chat about some life issues and give us all a chance to chew some stuff over. It’s certainly not about being preached at.
we promise not to smack you over the head with a bible
We are there to have heaps of fun but because we see this as an important part of life we’ve included it in the program.
