Pleasant Valley is proud to offer free admission to active-duty U.S. military personnel and their families from Memorial Day to Labor Day through the Blue Star Museums program.
Explore the nature of the Berkshires this summer with our experienced camp staff, and connect with old friends and new! Programs are specially designed to spark a child’s curiosity and care for the natural world through hands-on habitat exploration, interactions with wildlife, and creative crafts and projects.
We’re always on the lookout for innovative approaches to connecting people and nature, which is why we recently partnered with the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge to offer natural history programming to its summer R&R Retreat participants.
