About Overnight Camp

Sending your kids to YMCA Camp Eberhart gives them the opportunity to learn and grow in an extraordinary environment. The skills learned during their time at camp will be used throughout their lives and they will never forget the time they spend here. We hear it from campers old and new, there is no place like YMCA Camp Eberhart in all the world.

Summer campers – depending on their age, experience and interest – can participate in our well-known Traditional Resident Camp programs, including our week-long Resident Camp program, our Three-Day Try-It Camp, our Camper-In-Transition (CIT) program, our Staff-In-Training (SIT) program, Ranch Camp, and Astro Camp.

TRADITIONAL RESIDENT CAMP

Traditional resident camp at YMCA Camp Eberhart is our flagship program.  For over 105 years, our summer program has safely allowed children to learn new skills, belong to something bigger than themselves, and create lifelong friendships.  Campers and parents select from a variety of programs prior to attending camp. Our emphasis on skill development and progression sets YMCA Camp Eberhart apart from other camps. Campers are not only encouraged to participate in activities, but to gain a new level of proficiency. In addition to activities they’re passionate about, our open period allows them to experience other activities in Camp.

While at camp, campers will be in cabins with highly trained staff who are high school graduates, are First Aid/CPR certified, and truly care about every camper that comes through our gates. Many campers are home-grown, meaning they have been campers here themselves.

Our online registration system makes signing up for camp easier than ever. Our online scheduler allows parents and campers to pick the programs they want on a first come first serve basis to truly personalize their camp experience. Cabin mate requests, also made online, ensures campers are able to bunk with their best friends. Finally, parents are able to monitor store accounts from home, to make sure their camper can get everything they need from the camp store.

EPIC WEEK

EPIC WEEK is the final week of camp, and we go BIG! New ideas are tried, programs are open and cookouts are over the top. It is truly EPIC. Spots are limited, so register early.

THREE-DAY TRY-IT CAMP

A short-term exposure to Resident Camp for the first-time camper (ages 7-10). Campers attend camp beginning with our regular Sunday registration through Wednesday morning. Program participation will consist of regular camp activities and specialty programs available at the full week price. Campers will be housed with children their own age and the cabin groups will have a mixture of three-day participants and regular campers. Campers who are enjoying their stay and wish to finish out the entire week can do so (a small additional fee is necessary).
