Ready for a challenge?

The Ridgewood YMCA is excited and grateful to announce a $100,000 challenge grant from The Bolger Foundation as we celebrate the camp’s 65 year anniversary.  

Our challenge? Let’s raise the remaining $200,000 that is necessary to complete critical infrastructure repairs and upgrades throughout camp.  

Camp Bernie is a haven where kids of all backgrounds, beliefs, incomes and orientations feel a sense of belonging. And when kids feel they belong, they are more willing to explore, discover and take risks to achieve anything. 

Your support helps us keep this tradition alive for thousands of kids each year.

“The Bolger Foundation is proud to partner with the YMCA for the continued success of Camp Bernie and the renovations that will keep serving the community for the next 100 years.” – JT Bolger
