At Berkshire Nature Camp in Lenox, campers ages 3–13 have fun and make friends as they discover nature! Camp takes place at our 1,200-acre wildlife sanctuary—a beautiful natural setting with forest, meadows, mountains, brooks, and beaver ponds. Small group sizes encourage a welcoming, supportive environment. 

Campers experience and learn about a variety of Berkshire habitats and wildlife at weekly half- and full-day sessions. Daily activities include trail explorations, wildlife observation, outdoor play, hands-on activities, games, crafts, and more. No two days are alike! Learn More >
