YMCA CAMP BERNIE

Campers who attend our camp programs not only have the opportunity to do more - climb a 40 foot climbing tower, learn to ride a mini-bike, canoe down the Delaware, volunteer on a community project; but also to be more - overcome fears, gain self-confidence, a greater appreciation for nature, and the sense of satisfaction that comes from helping others.Our focus is on programming that is progressive and intentional. Progressive programming means that campers will find ways to build on the skills they learn, and explore a wider variety of activities as they return year after year, and even session after session. Intentional programming means that everything we do has a purpose - of course the activities are fun, but they also teach campers something about teamwork, sportsmanship, friendship, and self-confidence.Our staff are positive role models. We select mature, patient, skilled, and responsible staff after an interview process including background and reference checks. Prior to camp, all staff go through an intensive staff training to prepare them for camp. Many are students pursuing careers in education or human services, and come to us from across the country and throughout the world.Medical Supervision is 24/7. Our experienced Registered Nurse lives at camp and is on-call 24 hours a day.We Partner with Parents. We call all 1st time camper parents within 48 hours of their child's arrival at camp. We update our website daily with photos, menus, and special activities. Parents can send email to their campers which is printed and delivered daily.Our lodges and cabins are clean and comfortable. Each is equipped with bunk style beds, shelves and cubbies, indoor bathrooms, showers, and lounge with fireplaces and/or relaxing seating areas. We are located on 275 wooded acres in northwestern New Jersey, with miles of scenic trails. Day program available. Retreats & conferences accepted.
