Rebuilding Families

The Y's Rebuilding Families Camps are heavily subsidised, structured and individually tailored stays at YMCA Camp Yarramundi for families 'doing it tough'.

They're not workshops or self help sessions, they are just fun holidays, a chance to share fun and exciting experiences together and to take a break from the challenges of day to day life. Best of all, they are a chance to rebuild relationships, to enjoy respite and the opportunity to experience fleeting moments of quality time that most of us take for granted.

Participants will stay in comfortable, private cabins and enjoy a healthy, fully catered menu. The programs include a mix of high excitement adventure activities like high ropes, abseiling and canoeing along with sports, games and family time by the pool.

Most of all, participants will enjoy the opportunity to strengthen their family unit through quality time together.

Programs

YMCA SIBLINGS RECONNECT

Siblings Reconnect brings together siblings that are separated in foster care. Here, through a structured program, they support each other through challenges, create shared experience and lifelong memories. This time together is an important part of nurturing their familial bonds and stabilising the sibling relationship into adulthood.

YMCA PRYME CARERS

PrYme Carers offers grandparents who are the sole carers of their grandchildren a window of respite, an opportunity to not only share quality time together as a family, but also for grandparents to take ‘time out’ to enjoy the company of their partner and peers.

YMCA WEEKEND ESCAPE

Weekend Escape offers parents the opportunity to get away with their children and to share new and exciting experiences. The program is a chance for parents to connect with their children and take time out to watch them laugh, play, climb, paddle, swim and have fun. The program is also an opportunity for parents to share and discuss the issues they face. At the Y, we recognise that families come in all shapes and sizes and encourage single parents to apply.
