YMCA CAMPING BRISBANE


The YMCA believes that camping is all about challenging and inspiring through adventure. School camp is often the first time away from home for many young people, and is an incredible opportunity for them to increase resilience, become more independent and to develop their leadership skills.

At the YMCA, camping is part of our DNA! With more than 120 years' of history in providing camping experiences for children and young people, the YMCA has developed a unique approach that we offer to Australian families and schools through three distinctively different YMCA camps in Brisbane (Camp Warrawee and Camp North Pine) and Warwick (Camp Leslie Dam).

Please view our activities list and sample programs or simply contact us for a quote or more information.

At YMCA camping we cater for all groups, including:

  • Primary school camps
  • High school camps
  • Sports clubs and team training camps
  • Community group camps
  • Social group camps
  • Church group camps
  • Seminar and conferences
  • Special events e.g. family reunions
YMCA Camps can provide challenge and adventure through a range of fun outdoor education experiences or can simply be booked to host your social group weekend retreat.
