At Baptist Youth, we believe there is something special about camps. Having the opportunity to spend a whole week learning from God's Word, connecting with new friends, and having A LOT of fun - there is no doubt that Camps change lives!



Each year, we have hundreds of young people attending one of the wide variety of BY camps on offer. Whether you are 8 years old, 18 years old, or even 68 years old, you can be involved in our camp experience! Generally speaking, we have 2 types of camp. Firstly we have Childrens Camp - this is for anyone from P4-P7. Secondly, we have Youth Camps, these are for young people from Year 8 - Year 12.

In order to apply to a Baptist Youth Camp in 2018, click the link here.



Behind every great camp is a great team of volunteers. These volunteers are from all walks of life. The one thing that unites each of our volunteers, however, is that they have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. A rigorous process of application in line with BY’s child protection policy is undertaken for all our officers on our camps (copies of the policy are available by contacting Baptist Youth).
