Challenge - Adventure - Connection


The YMCA believes that camping is all about challenging and inspiring through adventures outdoors. YMCA Camping helps create meaningful connection through teamwork and service of others.

At the YMCA, camping is part of our DNA! We are excited to bring you more than 120 years' of history in providing camping experiences for children and young people. YMCA camps focus on holistic development by incorporating the body, mind and spirit. Only when you consider the whole person, does long-term change occur.

Located only 35 minutes north of Brisbane, YMCA Camping’s beautiful bushland setting provides the opportunity to escape and recharge, or challenge yourself through a range of adventure activities on land, on water, or in the air.
