The Y (formerly YMCA) has camps at two incredible locations in the Auckland region. Located on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula and in the Hunua Ranges, our two Y Outdoor Camps provide outdoor education for groups and individuals from across New Zealand, as well as overseas.

At The Y, we’re known for our fantastic facilities and services, and those on offer at The Y camps in Auckland are no different. Our facilities can host groups from 30 to 300 people in a range of accommodation options so regardless of your groups size or budget we're sure we can help.

Both The Y Camp Adair and The Y Shakespear Lodge are within an hour’s drive of the Auckland CBD, and they provide group accommodation, outdoor activities, catering options and cleaning services to make your stay a success.
