Support our COVID-19 Appeal

Although our expeditions are currently on hold, our charity is still working hard for young people in Nottingham! Nottinghamshire YMCA provides safe accommodation and support towards independent living to hundreds of people in Nottinghamshire, including dedicated spaces for under 25s If you are in a position to safely do so, we’d be so grateful for some extra help at this challenging time as part of our COVID-19 Appeal ➡️

Thank you!

We hope all our Adventure Guides families are keeping safe and well.



Events Calendar

***Due to COVID-19, all of our summer camping trips have been cancelled and our August trips have now been postponed to August 2021. We hope to restart excursions in September 2020, but please keep an eye on our website and social media pages for updates in line with government safety guidelines.***

Alongside your circle activities, Nottinghamshire YMCA runs monthly Adventure Guides events and expeditions for members of all circles to attend. These include day trips, camping weekends, and activity days. See our Events Calendar below.

Camping Expeditions

Every year, we also take our Adventure Guides families on various weekend camping expeditions where we spend time basking in the great outdoors, strengthening bonds between parents and children, learning new skills and taking part in a range of exciting activities.

Details and Prices

Expeditions are opportunities for members of all YMCA Adventure Guides circles to get together for fun adventures – think camping weekends, travelling day trips and more! Families will need to bring their own tents, pillows and sleeping bags to all weekends, but Nottinghamshire YMCA have limited tents available to borrow if required.

As a member of the Adventure Guides programme, camping weekends have a top-up price of membership £25 per family on top of the regular membership fee. This top-up fee covers breakfast and dinner, camping space and tent hire, staff time, delivering sports, creative art, and any other adventure based activities.
