Spring Camp is right around the corner! The weekend of March 18th to the 20th! Activities, friends, Big Game, St. Patty’s green dance party, green food, leprechauns…mom and dad get a weekend to themselves…what’s not to love?
We are at Cedarville University for a job fair today. Looking for the next great camp counselors!
Yes, along with the rest of the midwest, camp is frozen solid this week! Tree limbs are down, wind is blowing, ice covers everything, and we are all chilly. Summer Camp, please come soon!
Camp Kern wants to thank the Dayton Foundation for their support for the new Recreation Hall project at Kern! The recreation hall will house an indoor basketball court, indoor arts center, and will have large covered outdoor play areas. Expanding camp’s ability to offer indoor programming will make those rainy days at camp that much more fun! Don’t worry, we’ll still go on wet hikes, catch frog
s down by the pond (they all come out during the rain!) and explore the earthworm population as they emerge from their underground homes. However, after getting soaked and tired outside, now there will be a great place to play and spend time together under a roof.
Thank-you so much, Dayton Foundation! 45,000 Camp Kern guests yearly thank you!

In an effort to maintain transparency with our campers and parents, Camp Kern has made an open letter to our guests available at check-in and check-out during Summer Camp this year. Â The letter, attached below in it’s entirety, addresses the nuisance of bed bugs. We are very proud of the fact that we do not have a bed bug problem. The letter explains the steps we have taken to protect the campers and guests at Camp Kern.
Bed bugs are a pest who have made a resurgence in recent years, and have been dealt with in many high guest turnover industries, such as camping. Â As a camp, we have implemented an effective preventative plan, along with a rapid detection and response program.
