About Summer Day Camp

Not quite sure if you are ready for your child to experience overnight camp? Looking for an alternative to traditional child care for the summer? Want an amazing experience for your 4-12 year old?  Day Camp at YMCA Camp Eberhart is for you!

Our Day Camp consists of two tribes: Little Hawks, ages 4-7 year, and Thunderbirds, ages 8-12. Each tribe’s programming is designed specifically for the age groups in each tribe. Tribe are divided into smaller groups ensuring quality programming with great staff.

Each of our Day Camp tribes will also have the opportunity to visit our camp store on a daily basis to purchase additional snacks or merchandise.  A healthy morning snack and lunch will be provided.

Our Day Camp runs from 9:00am-4:30pm. Drop off is 8:55am-9:15am and pick up is 4:15pm-4:30pm.

Thursday Stay-Over
Campers 9 and older will also have the option of staying overnight. Stay-overs will enjoy participating in afternoon activities and evening programs, S’mores and other treats at the bonfire, sleeping in Obenchain Lodge or our Field Stone Cabins, and morning breakfast. Then back to their normal day camp schedule on Friday.

Stay-overs need to bring:

  • Bedding (sleeping bag/pillows)
  • Toiletries
  • Pajamas
  • Clothes for the next day
  • 2nd bathing suit/towel for the next day
