YMCA Camp Elphinstone

Our Trips

Ahh! The great outdoors! With 144 acres of ocean-front property, lush rainforest and quiet creeks, YMCA Camp Elphinstone is an ideal location for learning in the great outdoors. Located on British Columbia's beautiful Sunshine Coast, YMCA Camp Elphinstone is just two kilometres north of the Langdale Ferry Terminal and a 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver.

Through meaningful outdoor experiential learning, kids develop strong and healthy minds and bodies while they learn and grow with their classmates. Students are challenged outside the traditional classroom and benefit from hands-on learning as they explore the serene forests and rocky shoreline of beautiful YMCA Camp Elphinstone.

Programming is customized for each group and designed to fulfill BC Ministry of Education prescribed learning outcomes. Participants benefit from:

  • Structured activities like our discovery hike or marine beach study that teach about marine wildlife or the ecosystem.
  • Programming that focuses on skill development such as archery, orienteering or outdoor living skills.
  • Activities like our high or low ropes courses that encourage leadership and team building.
  • Water-based programming such as kayaking, canoeing and swimming.
  • Games and sports with an emphasis on physical activitiy, strategy and teamwork.
  • Interactive leadership sessions that focus on conflict resolution, group dynamics, public speaking and more.
