YMCA Camp activities

The camp will provide children and young people with opportunities to form positive values and to learn through positive, engaging, and interactive experiences. Campers will receive awards and certificates for demonstrating the four core values of the charity – caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. 
Our belief is that young people with access to these camps and our role model Camp Leaders will make healthier choices as they grow into adults. The programme is action packed, adventure driven and experience focused, and really engages with young people in a way they might not experience anywhere else.
