First established in the summer of 1909, YMCA Camp Eberhart is situated on 200 wooded acres with over a mile of shoreline on Corey Lake - located in southwest Michigan. Daily Schedule Campers' days are filled with discovery and learning through a wide variety of programs and spontaneous experiences. Campers explore new skills and new ideas with the guidance of cool role models - our talented and well-trained staff. We provide structure each day so kids can enjoy all that we have to offer in a safe and meaningful way.
Programs offered include:
Archery, Astronomy, Arts & Crafts, Boats, Canoes & Kayaks, Ceramics, Drama, Fishing, High Ropes Challenge, Horseback Riding, Horse Masters, Land Sports, Nature, Outdoor Skills, Photography, Riflery, Rocket Building, Sailing, Swimming, Trail Biking, and Waterskiing/Wakeboarding.
Our college-aged leaders are really kids at heart who we have been carefully selected for their positive disposition and program experience. Each of our summer counselors completed a mandatory 10-day staff training and program skills testing. We recruit outstanding international staff and from all across the United States.
We offer dormitory-style housing ranging from rustic stone cabins to log-style cabin lodges. All meals are served in Klinger Hall, except for the occasional cookout. Our infirmary is staffed 24 hours a day. Healthy living at Camp Eberhart is summed up with the motto: EB - MM - LH, or Eat a little better, Move a little more, Live a little healthier. We offer campers a nutritious menu with a variety of options at every meal and encourage them to be physically active every day.
I have been going to Camp Eberhart for years and I live for it. Now at thirteen, I will finally be going 2 weeks. I really recommend waterskiing and sailing because those were my two favorites. Camp Eberhart has a lot of fun activities.
