Camps maximise fun

Giving everyone the opportunity to travel and experience active recreation is a key priority for the Y, which operates a number of disability camps across Victoria for people of all ages.

The profit-for-purpose organisation, which is also a Registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider, has worked in the disability sector for over 30 years specialising in person-centred, supported camping experiences that maximise fun.

The Y’s disability camps provide a unique opportunity for participants to engage in activities that cater to their specific needs and abilities. These activities are designed to build physical, emotional, and cognitive skills while accommodating individual differences.

“Y camps are just so much fun” explained Toni Thatcher, Y Camp director.

“Nearly every weekend we head off on camp to wonderful locations across Victoria. Each camp location provides different experiences and activities for the participants to enjoy and try something new. Weather that be snow camp, city camps, locations near the beach or our new Y Retreats where we visit music festivals, go glamping or even to the Grand Prix”

Y Retreats, a new boutique camp offering was built off the back of client feedback. They empower campers to have the choice and control over what their weekend away looks where everyone can participate in their own way whilst sharing the experience with others.
