Make an impact during your summer as you engage in epic adventure, learning & serving.
Gain valuable skills through hands-on learning experiences at The Stable and the YWAM Precinct, complete with high ropes, low ropes, rock climbing wall and more.
You will have a powerful opportunity to be “challenged by choice” to help you grow in your faith, develop your character, and prepare for a life of following God.

- Teaching from experienced speakers
- Team building
- Leadership development
- Hands-on outreach preparation
- Challenge by choice course
Challenge yourself to step out of your comfort zone as you volunteer at The Stable – a celebration of the meaning of Christmas. Help the Townsville Community experience the joy and wonder of the season, as you grow and learn through service and adventure.
