CAMP BERNIE (OVERNIGHT CAMP) 

YMCA Camp Bernie is your local Overnight Camp; close to home, but a world away! An overnight camp experience is a unique opportunity for children to gain a sense of independence with the freedom to be themselves. Campers discover new skills through adventurous programs like mountain biking, canoeing, archery, rock climbing, zip-lining, horseback riding, and dirt biking. YMCA Camp Bernie provides campers entering grades 2-10 with a safe community to enjoy the outdoors and build lifelong memories and friendships.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

No two weeks at summer camp are the same. Throughout the summer, we feature different themes filled with new activities, new experiences and new memories. Whether it’s playing a new sport, learning about science and nature or exploring their creativity, your child can enjoy a summer full of friendships, achievement and belonging.
