CRU Training is based at the Galston Gorge Conference and Recreation Centre. From here we have direct access to hectares of private bushland and walking tracks that join with the Great North Walk and other outdoor areas within the Berowra Waters National Park. Although we are based in Galston we have lakefront training facilities on Lake Macquarie that allow us to run sailing and canoeing courses. These facilitates are also a great base for running many conventional outdoor activities such as abseiling, climbing and archery.


CRU Training was established in 2001 to service the needs of the growing staff team of camp leaders at CRU. Over that time we have issued hundreds of qualification in Outdoor Recreation and trained thousands of people in First Aid. Many of our trainees have gone on to continue to work for The Crusader Union of Australia in management and leadership roles and a substantial proportion of staff have remained actively involved in ministries where they apply the skills learnt during their time as students of CRU Training.


Crusaders Training is available to run first aid and water safety courses for groups of people and outdoor recreation qualifications for groups or individuals.
