Online mapping & GPS devices will use a more rural route, which may be more difficult to navigate (especially for buses). GPS devices also indicate the incorrect location of the camp driveway into our property.
Based on indications from Governor Murphy, YMCA Camp Bernie is planning to start Day Camp on June 22 and Overnight Camp on June 28. We are working to implement new procedures to address COVID-19 into our summer camp programs for summer 2020 which will be posted here in the next week.
