Girl Scouts

At YMCA Camp Bernie, we offer a wide variety of opportunities for Girl Scouts of all ages.  We run half-day, full day, and overnight trips for groups of 20-200.  Girl Scouts can earn badges and try-its, work on Journeys badges, earn service hours, connect with others, build confidence, create leaders, and bond with their troop and ther troops.  We offer activities to help complete those hard-to-do-on-your-own badges: high ropes, climbing tower, canoeing, teambuilding, archery, arts & crafts, nature hikes, Orienteering and more.  Leave all the complicated scheduling to us!  We'll create an activity rotation for your next Camporee that allows girls to stay together as a troop and experience all that Bernie has to offer!

Our programs are designed for children and adults to have fun while realizing their individual and collective potential. An overnight camping experience is a unique opportunity for children to enjoy the outdoors and build lifelong memories and friendships. Our incredible variety of activities allows campers to build confidence, try new things and have fun.


Our staff are positive role models who are extensively pre-screened and trained to ensure that all counselors are mature, patient, skilled and responsible.


Camp Bernie offers a wide range of activity options, all of which include an element of teambuilding.  See the activities pages for a full list of activity options. Contact us to arrange badge classes.
