School Camps

YMCA Camping - Inspire, Learn, Grow

1 Day School Camps

One day school camps are a great way to break down barriers, build team work, resilience and introduce leadership skills. The YMCA will select and tailor a range of initiative, trust, problem solving and adventure activities to achieve the targeted outcomes.

Centre-based school camps

Centre-based programs provide the opportunity to undertake a greater range of adventure activities each of which can be tailored to your chosen camp outcomes. Our qualified and experienced staff will take students through a journey of self-discovery under our model of challenge by choice.

A wide range of adventure, trust and initiative activities can be facilitated on land, water or in the air!

"With four years between visits to Camp Warrawee I was very pleased to see the ongoing improvements and developments that have been made since 2012. As an International visitor to the Camp I absolutely love the environs; the trees, the birds, the smells (even the possibility of seeing a koala in the wild !) are all true Australian experiences. Graeme, Glenys and the team were friendly, approachable and unfailingly helpful and accommodating of our bespoke programme. I would not hesitate in recommending Camp Warrawee to other groups looking for a well-kept, sharply-priced, fully catered camp venue."
- Mike Young, Head of Music, Pakuranga College


Expedition school camps

YMCA Expeditions are the next step in adventure for your school camp program. Expeditions offer a unique blend of learning experiences that are enhanced by the remote locations, time together as a group

The YMCA can tailor an expedition to suit your individual schools’ needs. From an overnight introductory experience to a five day advanced expedition, let us develop a program that your students will remember forever.


Whole of school sequential camps

With three different camp locations, and a range of expedition options, the YMCA can tailor a sequential program to meet the desired outcomes by all, or a selection of, the school’s cohorts.

Sequential camping programs provide development opportunities that are just not achievable in a classroom. With a holistic focus, YMCA camping programs support development of self-confidence, resilience, leadership and independence.

Camp Warrawee (Joyner) and Camp North Pine (Petrie) are only 35 minutes north of Brisbane and provides an ideal base from which to explore everything south east Queensland has to offer.

Camp Leslie Dam is located in stunning Southern Downs scenery and provides an ideal get away. Only ten minutes from Warwick, but far enough away to totally switch off, relax and unwind.
