Real outdoor overnight camping!
a program by Berks Area Youth Recreation held at Sill's Campground in Adamstown
Resident Camp is for ages 6-15 years; and the Jr. Aide & C.I.T. Youth Leadership Programs are for ages 11+.
Put the electronics down and enjoy a week of camp!
Campers will arrive with their parents/guardians to the cabin village straight inside Sill's Campground on a Sunday afternoon between 2:00-4:00pm.
Campers will be checked in, parents/guardians can help their campers get settled in, and we will get started with new adventures for the week!
After a week of camp adventures and friendships, parents/guardians return for camper pick-up on the following Saturday.
A confirmation packet, including a medical form and packing list, arrival and departure times, activity and meal outlines, etc., will be sent once your registration form and deposit are received.
All programs are outlined by standards and learning objectives as defined by the PA Department of Education, the American Camp Association, Berks Area Youth Recreation, and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

What will you do at camp?!
All camp sessions integrate traditional group camping experiences, including:
a camp photo
and a closing ceremony with awards, memories, and friendships!
The benefits of youth group camping can be realized long after the summer is over. Group camping fosters the best friendships and memories that last for a life time. Youth-camping with Berks Area Youth Recreation, utilizing American Camping Association (ACA) standards, will provide a young person with the insight for goals, environmental appreciation, and an awareness of community.
Come and be a part of BAYR Camp in 2022, and see for yourself!
We will be operating under the guidelines for resident camps for COVID-19 times as outlined by the PA Department of Health.
Berks Area Youth Recreation has provided years of exciting, challenging, and valuable outdoor learning experiences for children and youth that develop the whole person in learning for life!
Sill's Family Campground sits in rural Lancaster County, just beyond the Berks line. In a natural setting among the trees and hills, our campers can "get away" without traveling far.
Campers live in a cabin village, with amenities of electric and inside bathrooms. Also, we have a game field and swimming pool within walking distance from our cabin area.
Activities include group sports, cookouts, playground, pavilion game room, and so much more!
The real advantage of coming to camp is making friends and memories that last forever. So many of our former campers come back to visit and be in the midst of the environment!
