At Berkshire Nature Camp in Lenox, campers ages 3 to 16 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 1,200-acre wildlife sanctuary with diverse forests, meadows, mountains, brooks, and beaver ponds. 


Campers experience and learn about a variety of Berkshire habitats and wildlife during one-week sessions. Daily activities include trail explorations, wildlife observation, outdoor play, hands-on activities, games, crafts, and more. Learn More >
