Make life-long memories in the outdoors

Pack your backpack, slap on sunscreen and lace up your boots: it’s time to go camping… REAL camping. Survivor Expedition Camp (Survivor X) is a fun-filled trek and camp in nature - helping students to work as a team. Students spend one night camping in tents under the stars and the other in our cabins at YMCA Camp Warrawee.

Outdoor explorers will wander through a safe expedition route to their overnight campsite, accompanied by experienced guides. They will learn how to pack a backpack, cook their own meal, set-up tents and canoe.

Expedition Camp is designed to develop students’ essential personal and social capabilities such as communication, resilience, self-confidence, leadership, teamwork, goal setting, personal autonomy and initiative.

1 night at YMCA Camp

Students will learn valuable life lessons through outdoor adventure activities during their stay at YMCA Camp Warrawee, including archery, low ropes, stand up paddle boarding and our meltdown challenge.

1 night camping in the bush

Embarking on their expedition journey, students will put outdoor learnings into practice  discovering facts about nature and navigating through the bush. These activities help students develop peer-unity and problem solving processes. Expedition campers will discover their own personal strengths and be encouraged to explore leadership skills.

Under the instruction of experienced expedition guides, students will be responsible for pitching their own tents and setting up camp for the night (including a campfire experience facilitated by our staff). Spending a night beneath the twinkling starry sky is a special memory many of our campers say they will always remember.

On the expedition, campers will swap hiking for canoe – having fun exploring the beautiful North Pine River.

We can also tailor the expedition programs to suit your needs and objectives.
