Summer Camp Update

June 4, 2020

With sadness, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Knee-High Naturalist program (ages 3–5) at Pleasant Valley this summer. The re-opening plan for Massachusetts provides a cautious approach for the months ahead. After extensive discussion and site-specific scenario planning, we concluded that our site is best suited to offer part-day family programming for early childhood due to the social distancing challenges and facility limitations.

We are planning to run the Discoverers, Explorers, and Naturalists camp programs this summer, but in a modified way. We are still working out the details and will provide an update as soon as we can.

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 1,400-acre wildlife sanctuary with diverse forests, meadows, mountains, brooks, and beaver ponds.
