Each year our staff and volunteers work hard to raise more than $200,000 to help kids who couldn’t otherwise get to camp. Will you join us?”

“Your donation allows my daughter to see that people can be good and helpful even if they have never met you, I’m so happy she can experience the gift of giving.” – Camp Parent

Camp Scholarship Fund

Generous Camp Ernst supporters have been raising money to send campers to camp on scholarship since Camp Ernst’s founding in 1928. We would like to give our donors a BIG CAMP CLAP for their dedication to making a YMCA Camp Ernst experience accessible for all.

For The Love Of Camp Ernst

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.

Gifts In Kind

The Rockin’ E Ranch continues to grow through the generosity of recent in-kind donations, including sand for arena footing, Bobcat use/site work, arena barrels and posts, and even equine massages! If you have something that could benefit our program or facility, please contact Emily Momberger.
