YMCA Camp Bernie offers a wide variety of opportunities for Scouts of all ages. Trips are designed for groups of 15 to 200 people, and range from half-day to overnight experiences. Scouts can work on badges, earn service hours, build confidence, gain leadership skills, and bond with one another.

Activities

From Zip Lining and Archery to Tie Dye and Canoeing there is something for everyone here at Camp. We even offer CPR, First Aid, and Archery certification classes to older scouts and leaders looking to expand their skills.'
