YMCA Camp Eberhart

WHY PARENTS FEEL GOOD ABOUT OUR CAMP

 

Proven Safety Practices

 

YMCA Overnight Camps are dedicated to improving the quality of human life and to helping all people realize their fullest potential through the development of the spirit, mind and body.

 

Our Staff

 

We require comprehensive pre-employment screening for all staff and volunteers, including interviews, reference and nation-wide criminal history checks. Staff are not allowed to see minor participants outside of our programs.

 

Supervision

 

All children are under constant adult supervision, and YMCA staff are never alone with a single child. We use a “buddy system” with our campers. As part of effective 24-hour responsibility, YMCA staff reside within camper cabins.

 

Health Care & Safety

 

All program staff are certified in First Aid & CPR. YMCA Camp Eberhart has a well-equipped health facility, complete with dispensary, sick bays, and isolation rooms. A certified Health Officer, Nurse, or EMT is on-call 24-hours a day. In addition to Camp's medical staff, arrangements have been made with nearby physicians and the local hospital for consultation and emergency service.

 

Aquatics

 

Lifeguards are certified through either the YMCA and Red Cross, and receive additional site-specific aquatic training. Children are never permitted in aquatic activities without lifeguards present.

 

Facility Management

 

Our camp is considered a “closed environment”. Guests must be authorized, registered and supervised at all times.

 

YMCA Camp Eberhart is accredited by the American Camp Association. The main purpose of the ACA-accreditation program is to educate camp owners and directors in the administration of key aspects of camp operation, particularly those related to program quality and the health and safety of campers and staff. The standards establish guidelines for needed policies, procedures, and practices.
