Yes.

You need to buy two 3-way switches and a 4-way switch. You also need some 12/3 (or 14/3 if on a 15-amp circuit) and some 12/2 (or 14/2) cable.

When you go to the store to buy these, also pick up a free pamphlet available at most home centers that will give you the wiring diagram.

If you want to see a on-line diagram, try:

I notice that Wg is on-line now, so he may be giving you the same advice at this very instant. His web site has other options other than the one I pointed you to, although I prefer the one I indicated.
