A traditional overnight camp experience full of fun and friendship

YMCA Camp Erdman is a place for more than outdoor exploration—it’s a safe place for kids to discover who they are, improve skills, forge friendships, and develop independence.

The camp experience: see a sample schedule and select a specialty addition!

In the mornings, campers choose activities that interest them, such as archery, outdoor living skills, and art—or during camp registration, you can select a specialty addition such as horseback riding, surfing, North Shore adventures, and more. Instructors coach them through the week to improve their skills and confidence.

Later in the day, campers rotate through activity areas to experience all Camp Erdman has to offer, including hiking, sports, and swimming. Evening activities include campfires, dances, and a weekly campout. Campers and staff are encouraged to dress up on the Wednesday night of each session’s special theme.

Weekend stayover

For campers enrolled in consecutive sessions, this option allows a camper to be fully immersed in camp life for 2 weeks. During this time, campers are given a day where they do laundry and relax a little. Campers choose which activities they’d like to do at a slower pace than a regular camp day. This option is already included in leadership camps

You cannot register for a weekend stayover alone—instead, you can select this option during registration for traditional overnight camp. The program fee is $179 for Kama’aina (Hawaii residents) or $189 for visitors (out-of-state residents).

Mini Overnight Camp

This experience is for first-time campers ages 5-17 interested in sampling overnight camp. It’s a condensed 4-day, 3-night version of traditional overnight camp. The theme for 2024 is Minion Camp! We typically dress up in costume for our Wednesday night all-camp dance! The camp transportation add-on is not available for Mini Camp.

  • Dates: Tuesday, July 9 to Friday, July 12
  • Fees: Visitors (out-of-state residents) $599, Kama’aina (Hawaii residents) $569, Y Family Members $479
