Meeting Spaces

Meeting spaces at Camp Bernie vary by size and setting, to help accommodate all kinds of gatherings. Camp Bernie can provide a projector and portable screen for any meeting space, as well as easels and markers, tables, and chairs set up in your desired arrangement. Refreshments can be arranged with the Groups Coordinator.

Recreation Hall

Occupancy 50

Located upstairs in the Dining Hall, this space can also be used as a meeting space for up to 50 people, but its primary function is relaxation and fun.  This space houses the Camp Library as well as air hockey tables, foosball, ping pong, books and board games.  A great indoor space to let off some steam or kill some time!  This space features comfortable couch seating as well as easy access to Dining Hall features such as the coffee machine and WiFi.

Back Chapel

Occupancy 60

Located at the rear of the Dining Hall, this room can easily be closed off for private workshop sessions and presentations.  Tables and chairs are available, as well as lighting, electricity, ceiling fans, and easy access to Dining Hall features such as the coffee machine and WiFi.

Amphitheatres

YMCA Camp Bernie provides small fire pits at all of our cabins, but if you’re looking for larger campfire event, we have several designated amphitheatres to serve multiple groups.  Bench seating overlooks an oversized fire pit, and one site features a stage for participant skits, songs, or presentations.  Natural marshmallow sticks are plentiful, allowing for that perfect S’more (whether you like it burnt or golden brown).

Athletics Field

Soccer, Lacrosse, Flag Football, or any number of group games can be accommodated on this large open grassy space.  This has been the ideal spot for our Band Camps to rehearse their marching formations.   Features include permanent goals and a disc golf course spanning much of the main area of camp.  Balls and other athletic equipment available.

Kids need camp more than ever this summer!

New Jersey Youth Day Camps are permitted to open July 6th.  We are awaiting further clarification on a start date for Overnight Camps.  We are anticipating an update 6/8.

Camp Bernie will be implementing new procedures into our summer camp programs for summer 2020 to address COVID-19.  These are available here on the Overnight and Day Camp web pages.
