CYC – Christian Youth Camps has been running camps at our sites for over 70 years. With five campsites across Victoria, CYC offers a unique camping experience for church groups, school groups, social groups, and corporate groups. We also host our very own Holiday Camps, Family Camps, and leadership training camps and events.

As the ministry department of CYC – Christian Youth Camps, CYC Ministries annually facilitates over 45 camps and events for young people, families and leaders across our five sites.

Whilst our Christian faith is at the core of what we do, CYC camps and events extend to young people and families from a diverse range of backgrounds aiming to encourage campers to develop new skills, grow in their confidence, create life-long memories, as well as engage in Christian input and discuss issues around life and faith.

What ages can go on camp?

CYC camps are for all ages! Our primary camps tend to run for children in years 3-6, while our teen camps cover all high school-aged young people. For those outside these ages, we have everything from family camps to young adult camps!

How long are CYC camps?
Our programs differ in length. Most school holiday camps run for four nights, while some programs (including some family camps and young adult camps) may take place over a long weekend.

Where are CYC camps?
CYC has five sites across Victoria. We have two locations down at Phillip Island, one in Yarra Junction, one in Neerim East, and even one site in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
