Camp Activities

Quality programming is at the heart of YMCA Camp Eberhart’s summer experience. Our trained staff will lead campers through many of the programs offered below. Throughout their time at camp, campers will strive to reach their goals through our progressive programming. Below you will find a brief description of each program as well as our proficiency system which is a major part of our summer camp experience. Programs are included in camp cost unless marked otherwise.

Proficiencies & Awards

Each program has multiple proficiency areas. Each proficiency within a program has three levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. After passing each level in a proficiency, campers are given a patch to mark their accomplishment. After mastering each proficiency area in a program, a camper is given a proficiency award. Proficiency awards allow a camper to take a specially decorated piece of their program area home with them. Proficiency awards can be earned over multiple years.
