About YMCA Camps

Since opening our doors in 1853, YMCA Victoria has had a rich history and a clear vision where community comes first.We believe in the benefits of physical activity, empowering young people and building community connections. 

 

YMCA Camps have been running high quality camp facilities across Victoria for over 80 years.

During this time we have developed a proven and trusted framework and become leaders in our field.

We strive to provide opportunities for everyone to be happier, healthier and more connected to their community and to the natural environment around them.

We believe that everyone should have the chance to participate and enjoy all activities whatever their age or ability.  

Whether it is a school camp or a residential program for sporting associations, clubs, community or corporate groups, our experienced and skilled teams deliver a safe and supportive environment for all participants to be encouraged to gain new life skills and unleash their spirit of adventure.
