Berkshire Nature Camp at Pleasant Valley
At Berkshire Nature Camp at Pleasant Valley in Lenox, campers ages 5 to 15 have fun and make friends as they discover nature! Trail explorations, wildlife observation, outdoor play, hands-on activities, games, and crafts keep campers engaged throughout the summer.
Camp takes place at our 1,142-acre wildlife sanctuary, a beautiful natural setting with forest, meadows, mountains, brooks, and beaver ponds. No two days are alike!

Age groups include:
- Discoverers (ages 5–6)
- Explorers (ages 7–8)
- Naturalists (ages 9–12)
- Outdoor Leaders (ages 13–15)
- Leaders-in-Training (ages 16–18)
No two days are alike at camp, but this sample schedule gives an overview of daily activities and flow.
In 2017, Berkshire Nature Camp at Pleasant Valley is celebrating 70 years of experience connecting children to nature. We pride ourselves in running a safe, organized, educational program where each child matters.
Our staff of enthusiastic teacher-naturalists is dedicated to providing campers with a fun and memorable summer experience. In fact, many were once campers themselves and have come back to continue the wonderful tradition of sharing their appreciation of nature with today’s campers.
