YMCA Defence Communities. Have fun. Build connections. Make memories. Young people from Defence families can go on camps and participate in personal development programs through our Y-Equipped program.

With funding from the Department of Defence, we offer families and young people connected to the Defence Force a range of camps and activities. This includes Mini Sleepovers (ages 5-7), Explorers Activity Days (ages 8-13) and Families Camps.

Our YMCA SA staff have completed their DCSI/Working with Children Checks, a National Police Clearance, RAN Training and Basic First Aid/CPR.
