Do you remember your own camp experience? Bug juice, s'mores, friends, horses, crafts, fossils, lightning bugs, cool camp counselors... As director, I see firsthand the impact of a week of camp. But as a former camper myself, I can think back to singing songs around the campfire with my counselors and being encouraged to get back on my horse when I fell off. Those experiences and so many more involving the achievement, relationship, and belonging I discovered at camp carried me through my teenage years. They delivered me safely into adulthood where I have utilized the friend-making skills, leadership, love for the outdoors, and, yes, knowledge of thousands of camp song lyrics in my every day life. Please help YMCA Camp Ernst give that same experience to kids who couldn't otherwise afford it! A week of camp costs $610. Grab a few friends and get together to sponsor a camper...and change a life for the better! Thank you!
