YMCA Camp Bernie is an ideal location for Business Retreats— equally accessible via highway from both New York City and Philadelphia.  Camp Bernie is conveniently located but provides separation from the hustle and bustle of the everyday business world.   This is an ideal venue for escaping the disruptions of the office and allowing your coworkers to focus on working better as a team.

Activities

While we understand that many companies seek to build strength in their staff through traditional teambuilding activities, Camp Bernie offers a plethora of other activities in which team-building is a present aspect. Specifically, the majority of our challenge elements offer opportunities for groups to work together in order to provide thrilling experiences that come partnered with self-growth and team bonding. We offer a large variety of programming with different package options to fit your needs as a group.
