CAMP LEADERSHIP CIT/LIT PROGRAMS: The leaders in training program or L.I.T.s, is specifically designed for our oldest campers age 13-15. Leaders in training live in the Loft and Longhouse, cabins designed specially to foster community. In addition to the traditional camp activities, campers also participate in leadership rotations that are focused around team building, communication, role modeling, and problem solving. They put these skills to practice through service projects and the LIT/Lakeview day, where they are paired with a Lakeview cabin and help guide them through their lake rotations for the afternoon.

LITs enjoy other traditions like a Tuesday cookout, Pizza making and dodgeball, and the LIT favorite, the After-Party.

The Camp Ernst Crew Program is a leadership experience for those entering the 10th grade in Fall 2014. The crew program is designed to help foster responsibility, positive learning, teamwork, initiative, and a caring attitude that crew members will be able to use in and out of camp. To achieve this, the crew will participate in trainings, leadership rotations, guest speakers, and experiential service learning during their two week stay. They will form a tight knit group with the other crew members as they work together to complete a variety of tasks throughout their stay.

The Crews primary responsibility during their two week stay will be to perform an assortment of jobs throughout the camp. These tasks include cleaning dishes, serving food, cleaning bathrooms, sweeping, mopping, working on facility projects such as clearing trails and painting projects, and picking up trash. These experiences are used to develop the leadership skills that will be beneficial in the future summers at camp and other future endeavors.

Crew also finds time for the classic camp fun you may remember as a camper. Their college-age leaders will schedule time at the ropes course, lake, and pools. There will be opportunities for creek hikes, campouts, campfires, night hikes, mountain biking and much more. Crew members will attend opening and closing campfires as well as the Camp Ernst Party every Thursday. Crew members will also be given some opportunities to assist with camp-wide programming.

CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: We offer Income-based sliding scale scholarships. Applications open in January and funds are limited. Please check our website at: Our Camp Website Link: www.myycamp.org for more information.

Family camp is held over Memorial Day and Labor Day Weekends. Check out our website at: Our Camp Website Link: www.myycamp.org for more information.
