Quality time away for dads and kids

When was the last time your kids spent quality time with their dad?

Camping is a great way for dads to bond with their kids. And with the YMCA, we make camping an easy, fun and enjoyable experience! 

YMCA Father and Kids Camps are weekends away where your kids can spend quality time with their dad, share fun outdoor experiences together and create lifelong memories.

Whether you are a traditional dad in a traditional family, a stepdad, a stay home dad, a non-custodial dad, or whatever your role, the most precious thing a dad can give his kids is his time.

Fathers will have the opportunity to spend time with their son or daughter to help strengthen bonds and really focus on the relationship away from the busyness of everyday life.

The camp does not involve workshops or “self-help” sessions – it’s just a fun holiday and a chance for dads to reconnect with their kids; to share new and exciting experiences and create lifelong memories.

Dads and their kids will enjoy sharing outdoor activities including:

  • Rock climbing
  • Archery
  • Flying fox
  • Campfires

Stay in either a comfortable, air-conditioned cabin with an attached bathroom, or go for the ultimate camping experience and stay in a tent.

When: 17-19 April 2015

Where: YMCA Camp Yarramundi, Springwood NSW
