Facilities

In addition to our cabins, Camp Bernie also offers a wide variety of other facilities available for group use.  To reserve any of these spaces, please contact the Group Coordinator.

I don’t know what I would do without camp, it has changed my life in such a positive way.

    This cozy, natural wood space provides a large and comfortable setting and is conveniently located at the heart of camp for easy access from the parking lot or any cabin.  This space features festive lighting, a permanent pull-down projector screen, wifi, and open access to the coffee machine.  Breakout space is available between the Main Room, Back Dining Hall, Rec Hall, and Back Chapel; all located in this building.

    Amidst the calming backdrop of nature, this spacious, open-air venue helps get the creative juices flowing.  Exceptionally versatile, the Pavilion offers the perfect setting for any gathering.  This space features lighting and electricity, as well as moveable picnic tables.

     

    Grassy Knoll

    Seats up to 40ppl

    Turrell Meeting Space

    Seats up to 100ppl
    This large, formal classroom space is an ideal location for a large group meeting.  Far from distractions, but with direct access to the natural woods and fresh air of camp, the space provides the perfect dichotomy between focus and freedom, allowing participants to unplug from the hustle and bustle of the outside world and really concentrate on self-improvement, motivation, and teambuilding.

     

    Lenape Meeting Space

    Seats up to 40ppl, wood-burning fireplace   
    Similar to Turrell, this space is a formal classroom designed for a smaller group.  Lenape also offers direct access to the natural woods and fresh air of camp, allowing participants to unplug from the hustle and bustle of the outside world and really concentrate on self-improvement, motivation, and teambuilding.

     

    Recreation Hall

    This space can also be used as a meeting space for up to 50 people, but it’s primary function is relaxation and fun.  This space houses the Camp Library as well as pool tables, air hockey, foosball, TV, and board games.  A great indoor space to let off some steam or kill some time!  This space features comfortable couch seating and a TV, as well as easy access to Dining Hall features such as the coffee machine and wifi.

     

    Amphitheatres

    YMCA Camp Bernie provides small fire pits at all of our cabins, but if you’re looking for larger campfire event, we have several designated amphitheatres to serve multiple groups.  Bench seating overlooks an oversized fire pit, and one site features a stage for participant skits, songs, or presentations.  Natural marshmallow sticks are plentiful, allowing for that perfect S’more (whether you like it burnt or golden brown).

     

    Athletics Field

    Soccer, Lacrosse, Flag Football, or any number of group games can be accommodated on this large open grassy space.  This has been the ideal spot for our Band Camps to rehearse their marching formations.   Features include permanent goals and a disc golf course spanning much of the main area of camp.  Balls and other athletic equipment available.

     

    Basketball Court

    This centrally located double court with 4 hoops allows for multiple games or a combination of one-on-one, tournament style, Knockout, and Around the World.  Tall fencing on either side keeps the ball in play.  A Foursquare court is located nearby.  This is a terrific spot for letting loose and having some unstructured free-play time.  Balls and other athletic equipment available.

     

    Volleyball Court

    A large sand court, perfect for a big game!  Volleyball(s) available.
