With its unbelievable views, many indoor and outdoor spaces and wide range of on-site activities, YMCA Elphinstone Event and Retreat Centre has become the venue of choice for these three types of events.



With an ability to accommodate wedding parties from 30 to 300, endless instagram-worthy spots, and several land and water-based activities for guests to enjoy before and after the ceremony, YMCA Elphinstone has become a hot-spot for weddings. Not to mention, with on-site catering and accommodations you'll have everything needed in one place, allowing you to focus on what's most important — enjoying the memorable occasion with family and friends. Also, time and time again wedding parties have extended their wedding celebration over the course of an entire weekend — an option that certainly makes YMCA Elphinstone a popular location for weddings. After all, why not keep the good times rolling as long as possible?
