DEDICATED TRADITION Dear Parents, As a mom of three, I want my kids to be happy and have fun, but I also want them to be continuously learning and growing. That’s one reason why I love the atmosphere of YMCA Camp Ernst: making friends with all kinds of new people, learning to get along in a group, trying new things and testing out independence under the caring direction of cool camp counselors, and receiving constant encouragement and affirmation in being their own wacky selves. Come see why we are the summer camp of choice for kids and parents all over Greater Cincinnati, Lexington, and around the world! Ernstlove, - Elizabeth “Eli” Cochran, Camp Director

DEDICATED SUMMER STAFF: Returning year after year, Camp Ernst’s staff of high school and college students are committed to helping young people develop into caring, responsible citizens. Staff maintain a 1:6 counselor to camper ratio while participating in the adventures of camp with their campers. Counselors are trained in all the basics including first aid/CPR, bully-prevention, child abuse prevention, as well as how to help kids make friends and work together.
