Outdoor Education

YMCA Camp Erdman is excited to announce its revamped Outdoor Education Program! We offer a multitude of programs specifically designed to meet the needs of 1st through 12th grade campers. Below are the various tracks offered here at YMCA Camp Erdman.   


1st-4th Grade Outdoor Education - General Track

The purpose of this program is to introduce our youngest campers to the basics of environmental studies and team building. Campers will have the opportunity to experience all of YMCA Camp Erdman’s classic camp activities. Campers will leave this program with enhanced communication skills and an overall understanding of the environment around them.


5th-12th Grade Outdoor Education - Environmental Track

The purpose of this program is to provide our campers with the opportunity to experience nature through a variety of hands-on activities. We want campers to leave YMCA Camp Erdman with a new appreciation for Hawaii's beautiful surroundings and have a better awareness on how to protect our environment. Our program most importantly promotes a sense of community and cooperation among the students through safe, fun and challenging activities.


5th-12th Grade Outdoor Education - Team Building Track

The purpose of this program is for campers to reach beyond their limits while enhancing communication and cooperation skills among their group of peers. Campers will overcome many challenges individually and as a group during their camp experience. These activities will help them build self-confidence and a stronger sense of community. They will leave YMCA Camp Erdman with a multitude of new skills that can be applied in their everyday lives.
