COVID-19 Safety

The health and welfare of our campers and staff remains our highest priority. We feel confident that the success of Mass Audubon Camps in designing and offering a safe summer of camping in 2020 will guide us into another great summer in 2021. More details >

At Berkshire Nature Camp in Lenox, campers ages 3-13 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 Pleasant Valley, our 1,400-acre wildlife sanctuary with diverse forests, meadows, mountains, brooks, and beaver ponds.
