Here's a sample to get you excited about your adventures on camp! (Activities will vary between age groups)

Breakfast: Choice of continental or hot breakfasts, which can include bacon and eggs, baked beans, pancakes.

Invisible Maze: Campers navigate their way through a particular path working as a team with their friends. This is a teamwork activity and a great way to get to know each other!

Minute to win it: This activity promotes working in a team and leadership abilities through the completion of as many tasks from a list as possible in an hour.

Morning Tea: Fruit and vegetable platters.

Campsite Activity: Campers get the chance to really push themselves in a safe environment through adventure activities such as the giant swing, canoeing and snorkelling. All our activities are run with a challenge by choice philosophy.

Lunch: Variety abounds throughout the week with options such as barbeques, wraps, rolls and even burgers!

Swimming: Campers get the chance to swim in the bay with fully trained YMCA staff keeping a close watch.

Messy Wreck: Let's get messy with slime, goo and water balloons, with other campers.

Afternoon Tea:  A selection from biscuits, muffins and cakes, all cooked and prepared on site by the amazing campsite staff.

Craft: Free choices range from bracelet making, painting and drawing to pirate flag

Free Time: Building relationships in small groups, campers deciding on what they would like to do from a variety of options, such as sports, craft and puzzles. One camp favourite is Leaders v Campers soccer.
