About this camp

Located in the foot hills of the Berkshires in Northwest Connecticut. Our two-week summer overnight camp program emphasizes growth and strengthens character values in our campers. Throughout the program, campers learn more about themselves and how to work together with one another.

Whether it is playing an all-camp game, learning new skill, or eating dinner family-style in our dining hall—campers form meaningful relationships. Plus they get to try new things while having fun.

Summer overnight camp is full of outdoor activities like campfires, hikes, skits and songs, outdoor activities. Over the two weeks, campers disconnect from the technology and distractions of outside life.

At camp, our number one priority is providing a safe, positive camper experience. We believe that campers are most successful when given the opportunity to push themselves out of their comfort zones and discover in themselves resiliency, responsibility, and confidence.
