YMCA Camp Ernst, located on Camp Ernst Road in Burlington, is offering an amazing opportunity to one lucky child in the area, to win a free week of summer camp. The scenic 365-acre camp features two beautiful pools, a water trampoline, large lake, horseback riding, kayaks, canoes, zip lining, a climbing wall, and lots more. Parents of first-time campers are invited to take an online survey at http://www.Vacation.MyYCamp.org and will be automatically entered for the free week of vacation at Camp Ernst, valued at almost $600. "How would your children benefit from his/her experience? What would you do with a weeks vacation?"
Each summer over 3,000 children attend Camp Ernst; many are repeat campers. For nine themed weeks every summer Camp Ernst hosts boys and girls, from ages 6 to 15. The camp is just a 25-minute drive from downtown Cincinnati. 75 percent of all its counselors were once campers themselves. 18-year-old Ryan Erickson of Anderson Township is looking forward to his tenth summer at camp. Now a Denison University freshman, Erickson said he believes that the camp experience can change a child’s world. “I believe camp can help you gain your voice and build confidence,” said Erickson. “Every interaction, every experience at camp, changes your outlook and I always return home a better person.”
