1. Medieval Mayhem
We kick off our summer with with a regal "Medieval Mayhem" theme for session A. All you princes and princesses, break out your royal garb and get ready for a day of knight's training, a renaissance fair, and don't forget those mean smelly old dragons!  Will you be our Camp Bernie champion and be knighted for all of camp history?
 
2. Intergalactic Space Odyssey
Discover a whole new world during session B in our "Intergalactic Space Odyssey." Break out your robot dance moves, tin foil, and bright alien colors to discover a whole new planet... Planet Camp Bernie!  Prove you have the stuff to lay claim to this strange new land. 
 
3. London Color Wars
Cue the legendary marching music as we celebrate the 2012 London Summer Olympics during session C with our "London Color Wars." Do you have the spirit? Come with a rainbow of colors (and your fake British accents) to show your team spirit as we compete in Olympic-style and Bernie-style challenges. Will you go for the gold?
 
4. Wild Wild West
Yeeeeee-haw! Alright all you buckeroos, bandits, settlers, indians, cowgirls and cowboys, grab your spurs and get ready for a "Wild Wild West" adventure for session D. Do you have what it takes to survive the old west?  Do well and you will collect gold nuggets, but be on the lookout for Billy the Kid and Calamity Jane!  Giddy-up! 

As we get only a few weeks away to the start of camp, your counselors are getting together phenomenal costumes and dress up gear for the All-Camp Day extravaganzas. Don't be outdone, come to camp dressed to impress in your themed costumes! And remember, you don't have to always buy your costumes, some of the best ones are home-made or from an old closet. Just make sure you ask your parents before you bring their expensive cowboy boots to camp!  We can't wait to see you all here soon for a summer never to forget at YMCA Camp Bernie!
