CAMP 1

Surf and Aquatics Camp - 19th - 23rd December 2016 - 3 Day option also available (19th - 21st December) Suitable for ages 7 to 16. - Our surf camp is even bigger and better than last year! Held in the first week of the school holidays, and just before Christmas, it is a great chance to unwind after a year at school. This year we are camping at a private campsite, in tents, right at the waters edge so we have perfect access for Kayaking, Swimming and relaxing around the water.

Of course no surf camp would be complete without some surfing! No experience is necessary and all equipment and instruction is provided in a safe and fun location at Goolwa Beach, one of South Australia's greatest beaches for beginner and intermediate surfers!

About - School Holiday Camping

The YMCA not only seeks to give campers a fun and exciting holiday. We believe in the tremendous capacity that camping has to shape, develop and challenge. 

YMCA’s Outdoor Education programming is about recognising the benefits of outdoor learning activities that promote personal growth, social development, confidence, self-esteem and self-drive.

Our activities are selected to promote the desired needs and outcomes of individual groups to enhance their learning ability through our challenge by choice philosophy.

Our large variety of outdoor activities such as rock climbing, archery, canoeing, and snorkelling are ideally suited to enhance growth with the support of our exceptional staff.
