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.


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.

Action Socialization

The cornerstone of our retreat and bonding experience is our ASE classes. These combine portable activities and stationary ones within the woods— both of which are facilitated and debriefed by our instructors here. Our staff provide personal experiences tailored you your group’s skill, ability, and overall goal.


Should you choose to extend your stay to multiple days, Camp Bernie offers accommodations to help groups bond through shared quarters—our variety of cabins fit groups of all shapes and sizes, allowing for integration or separation as needed.
