Camps and conferences are run by young people and for young people, particularly for teenagers and students in years 7-12 for fun, fellowship and a chance to grow in their faith and relationship with God. We have programs and events aimed towards high school students and teens that create spaces where each can be themselves in the presence of God and to each other.

If you’re in Year 7 to 12 and want to get connected to a youth group in your area visit our “Find a Youth Group In Sydney” MapΒ  or contact info@sydneycatholicyouth.org
