Previous Summers


An important emphasis for us this summer has been on fostering creative play. In no place have these efforts been more fully realized than in Berkshire Village, where our youngest campers (pre-K through 2nd grade) spend their days. The Berkshire Village mascot is the Bear (or bear cub, in Mini Camp) and the “Bear Grounds” comprises the new area of camp designed specifically for them. The Bear Grounds contains two cabins –the Mini Camp cabin and the Bear’s Den (formerly known as the Art Ark)—and two large outdoor play areas connected by a large hillside slide. Both the indoor and outdoor playspaces have been stocked with toys, materials, and equipment designed to encourage and facilitate exploration, cooperation, hands-on learning, turn-taking, perspective taking, and, of course FUN. We are happy and proud to say the new play spaces have not only been well received by campers and counselors alike, they are succeeding beyond our expectations.
