YMCA Camp Eberhart uses the "Voluntary Participation" philosophy in all Adventure programs. No one is coerced or forced to attempt anything that he/she does not want to do. We do, however, make every attempt to encourage individuals to achieve goals that initially they thought were not possible.

Adventure Recreation

This program is designed for fun. From youth groups to corporate groups, people like to have fun. When is the last time your group got outdoors and had fun together? Come out to YMCA Camp Eberhart for a day spent on the High Ropes Course, Climbing Tower, Low Ropes Course, or choose from 25 other available programs. The main focus of the day is to provide an exciting and memorable group experience.


For groups that are just forming, this program helps members get to know each other. It allows participants to break down initial barriers and get excited about performing as a team. Based on your group, a YMCA Camp Eberhart facilitator will design a day filled with fun activities that create group bonding.

Adventure Leadership

This program is designed to bring out leadership qualities and teach participants to use them to accomplish group goals in constructive ways. While participants are being challenged, the leadership traits emerge. By identifying these traits, the group can rely on the leadership strengths of their members to overcome challenges. YMCA Camp Eberhart's facilitator will transfer the experience back to real life, which reinforces participant's leadership qualities. The United Way of St. Joseph County (MI) provides sponsors over 300 students each year in this program. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
