Labor Day Family Camp

September 4-7, 2020

Bring your family and friends for the weekend and enjoy all the favorite camp activities: Archery, Canoeing, Climbing, Arts & Crafts, Nature Hikes, Games & Sports, and more or find a shady spot in the beautiful outdoors to enjoy a nap or good book.  During the evenings, join our staff in singing songs around the campfire, laugh at their skits, and share your own talents!  Our food service staff keeps your taste buds dancing a variety of fare including a fully-stocked salad bar every lunch and dinner and a fruit and cereal bar during breakfasts.

Escape the muggle world and come to Hogwarts, where you can join other witches and wizards in lessons, House competitions, and even our own Yule Ball!  Don't miss out on this magical and memorable family vacation!

Our facilities feature beautiful, spacious cabins with dormitory-style bedrooms with common rooms and bathrooms. (Please bring your own bedding and towels)  YMCA Camp Bernie sits within the Schooley Mountains in the northernmost area of Hunterdon County, New Jersey; approximately 1.5 hours from New York City. The camp sits on 275 acres of hilly forests and beautiful streams feeding the Musconetcong River. The surrounding areas include an additional 500 acres of protected county park property including trails and outdoor opportunities in our own backyard.
