ABOUT US

History

As a registered not for profit charity Apex Camps has a long history of successfully running camps. Our first site – Apex Camp Mudjimba started from humble beginnings in 1983 when a group of civic minded Apexians from the local area wanted to provide the opportunity to engage the local community in the camp experience. Over the years Apex Camp Mudjimba has grown from 1 building to one of the most respected camps on the Sunshine Coast. From those beginnings we then opened Apex Camp Greenup to provide a truly unique bush experience for our groups. In 2013 and 2014 we took over leases on two previous Queensland Government Active Recreation Centre’s on Magnetic Island. We can now offer our guests an unique island adventure on Magnetic Island off the coast of Townsville, or a tropical getaway on the famous Atherton Tablelands west of Cairns.

Apex Camps supports a number of youth initiatives through Apex, for example the Queensland Apex High School Debating Competition and Teenage Fashion Design Awards, as well as our Apex Kids to The Coast. Numerous time a year we sponsor and run camps that under-privileged children and children from troubled backgrounds can attend. These are just some of the ways Apex Camps gives back to the community.

Apex Camps was started by Apex Australia, a service organisation for men and women between the ages of 18 to 45 that want to give something back to their communities. Apex was started in Australia in 1931. Today there are Apex Clubs throughout Australia and in several countries abroad. By choosing to stay at an Apex Camp, you are helping Apex serve local communities.


Apex Australia

Apex Australia is a vibrant and energetic volunteer service organisation focused on harnessing the ideas, ideals and intelligence of younger Australians aged 18 to 45. We are an authentic Australian icon – established in 1931 and going strong. We have helped more than 200,000 younger Australians make a difference to their community, learn valued skills and make great friends. The Apex story is one of fun, fellowship and friendship. We offer you the opportunity to give others a fair go, practical help and positive role models to reach their own potential. Its Apex, Its Australian!

Apex volunteers can be located from Alice Springs to Wodonga, from Brisbane to Goondiwindi. They are lawyers, carpenters, school teachers, council workers, students and farmers. There is no typical Apexian – gender, geography and gainful employment are no guide as to why people joined or how they get involved. We have a policeman who project manages a statewide fashion show and a publican who runs a multi-layered national organisation.

You can be an Apex member right now. Many of yesterday’s new Apexians, often having joined soon after school, college or university, are today’s medical researchers, managers, elected representatives and community leaders. Apex has made a difference to their lives and it can do the same for you. Your local Club will offer you plenty of opportunities to help other Australians, make new friends, and gain skills in public speaking, leadership and communication.
