Y Camping creates memories that will last a lifetime. Our school holiday camps are the BEST fun for 8 to 16 year olds!

At YMCA, we believe in the tremendous capacity that camping has to shape, develop and challenge. Our goal is to provide children and young people with exciting experiences in a fun, safe camp environment. YMCA camps promote personal growth, social development, confidence, self-esteem and self-drive.

YMCA Winter Support Camp 

YMCA's Winter Support Camp has additional support in place and a different schedule to our usual School Holiday Camps. This is the perfect camp for young people who might be under the Guardianship of the Minister, or might just have a lot going on in their home lives, are presenting with challenging behaviours or for whom the traditional format of camps isn't for them.

We recognise that for some young people, our usual holiday camps don't always have the right level of support, boundaries and we're committed to offering opportunities for ALL young people, which is why we've created this tailored program.

A 3-day camp is $410. Transport from a metro location is an additional cost.

  • Ages 8 - 13 (primay school aged) - Monday 16th July to Wednesday 18th July
