Boys and girls, ages 6 to 15, are able to enjoy the YMCA Camp Ernst experience. YMCA Camp Ernst is just a 25-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. 75-percent of its counselors were once campers like you at Camp Ernst. Come check out our 365 scenic acres of hardwood forests, playing fields, a horse barn and trails, and a 26-acre spring-fed lake.

Our popular lakefront features the 100-foot waterslide, blob, water trampoline, banana boat, canoes, kayaks, aquacycles, and sno kones!

Camp’s two creeks, two swimming pools, zipline, giant swing, climbing wall, burma bridge, and air walk ensure that every day is full of exciting activities.

Archery, BB ranges, and a dynamic Fine Arts program round out the daily adventure opportunities at Greater Cincinnati’s most popular camp.

 

YMCA Camp Ernst is accredited by the American Camp Association,
the standard of the industry.
