School Holiday Camps

Auckland Holiday Camps for Kids

Glow worm walks, kayaking, high ropes, raft building and mountain boarding are just a few of the activities kids can take part in at our school holiday camps in Auckland. 

Each day is action packed, and there are heaps of opportunities to make friends and do stuff that your child has never done before.

We have YMCA camps in two locations, our beautiful YMCA Camp Adair in Hunua, and YMCA Shakespear Lodge in Whangaparaoa. 

YMCA Camp Adair is loaded with activities, from the high ropes course, to the thrilling mudslide.  YMCA Shakespear Lodge is a little more water focused with sailing, kayaking and water safety, as well as climbing, bush cooking, archery and heaps more.

For more information about these camps, please get in touch!
