Keeping You Informed: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
YMCA Camp Eberhart facilities have been mandated by the government to close effective Monday, March 16 at 3:00 PM. We plan to reopen Tuesday, March 31.
As always, YMCA Camp Eberhart remains committed to maintaining a safe, clean and healthy environment for our staff, campers, and guests. In partnership with the American Camping Association (ACA) and the Michigan YMCA Camping Network (MYCN), we are closely monitoring information about COVID-19 and are actively discussing the latest updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
At this time, we are planning on providing our campers with a much-needed, fun-filled summer camp experience for Summer 2020. With summer 3 ½ months away, we will continue to monitor the effects of Coronavirus and our ability to run summer camp this year. We are committed to honoring the following cancellation policy:
- If the Coronavirus is still impacting our region and we are unable to offer camp this summer, camp families will receive a full refund of their camp fees.
- If YMCA Camp Eberhart runs as planned this summer and a camp family makes the decision to cancel their registration, our traditional camp cancellation policy applies.
We will continue to keep you updated as information pertaining to summer camp as it evolves.
