Family Camps

Family Memories Built Around A Campfire

Join us for our Memorial Day, Labor Day or Mini Family Camp programs. Each of these programs provide a perfect way to spend time with family or friends, connecting and bonding in a beautiful, relaxed setting. These are residential programs, with families sleeping at camp in one of our heated and air conditioned cabins or lodges. All meals and activities (except horseback riding and rafting) are included in the prices listed below.    

Memorial & Labor Day Family Camp

Start your own holiday weekend tradition with YMCA Camp Kern! Each themed weekend is based on offering traditional camp activities for all ages such as archery, climbing, swimming, zip lines, arts and crafts, canoeing, campfires, games and more. In addition you will have some free time to explore camp and take advantage of all the self led activities such as hiking, sports and gaga. We also offer some great optional extras such as horseback riding and rafting. Most importantly though, your family will get to spend time together, building deeper relationships and meeting other families who will quickly become your lifelong 'camp friends'.
