To edit your profile information, log in to your Youcamp account, then go to the profile drop-down and click Edit Profile.
To edit your profile picture click Update Image then browse for your new image and click Open.
You can update any of the other fields including your Name, Email Address, Phone number and your personal Description on this page.

Why do I need to upload a photograph?
People feel more comfortable to share a space when they know what someone looks like. A picture will be the first thing people notice before either making a booking or accepting one. So it is worthwhile to spend some time getting it right and making sure it is as friendly and welcoming as possible. Put your best face forward!
Can I upload a photo of me with my partner as we are hosts together?
Yes. Many hosts are couples or business partners so you can upload a photo showing two hosts.

If you know your current password, but you want to change it, log in to your Youcamp account, then go to the profile drop-down and click Change Password. Fill in the password fields and click Save.

I used Facebook to log in, but I want to create a Youcamp password?

You can continue to log in via Facebook, or if you’d like to create a Youcamp password, log in to your Youcamp account, then go to the profile drop-down and click Change Password. Fill in the password fields and click Save.

Why didn’t I receive my email notification?
If you didn’t receive an email notification from us, there are a few troubleshooting options to try:
Make sure your email address is correct
We might be sending emails to an old or incorrect email address. To check the email being used, log into your Youcamp account, then go to the profile drop-down and click Edit Profile. From here you can check and update your email address.
After updating any of your information click Save.
Search all messages in your email inbox
Some emails can get lost in your inbox. In your email account, search for terms like “Youcamp”, “booking”, “verification”, or other words related to the email you’re looking for.
Check your spam and other email filters
It’s possible your email provider mistakenly sent our messages to your spam or junk folder. To avoid this:
- Remove Youcamp messages from your spam list
- Add youcamp.com.au to your personal email address book
- If you have set any other rules in your email account that may have sorted Youcamp emails elsewhere, be sure to check those, too.
Check for issues with your email service provider
Depending on your provider, emails can take up to a few hours to be delivered. If undelivered or delayed emails continue to be an issue, check with your provider to see if there are any configuration issues or problems with their network that might be affecting your account.
