Friends of Camp Ernst

More Kids Need Ernst from YMCA of Greater Cincinnati on Vimeo.

For the summer of 2017, Camp Ernst supporters raised enough money for the camper scholarship fund to give a record number of campers the time of their lives! We would like to give these families a BIG CAMP CLAP for their dedication to making a YMCA Camp Ernst experience accessible to all. Click here for some quotes from scholarship campers!

Our capital campaign has aimed to improve camp safety, expand camper capacity, enhance current facilities, and provide more opportunities for camp fun!  Thousands of campers and counselors each summer call YMCA Camp Ernst “home” thanks to the commitment of many volunteers and donors who have been intricately involved in sustaining it since its founding in 1928.
Recent facility improvements were supported through a successful capital campaign which began in 2010. We would like to offer a BIG CAMP CLAP to these folks, who have invested in the future of Camp Ernst.
