Expeditions & Activities


Our monthly activities and expeditions are an opportunity for member families from all circles to get together for fun adventures – think camping weekends, travelling day trips and more!

Monthly Activities
Something new to explore every month, these activities are included within your membership fee and range from safari to swimming, adventure experiences to theme parks.

Camping Weekends
For members, camping weekends have a small top-up price of membership £25 per family. This includes breakfast and dinner, camping equipment and all your activities for the weekend! Families will need to bring their own tents, pillows and sleeping bags to all camping weekends, but YMCA has limited tents available to borrow if required.
