Summer Camp at Berkshire Hills

A co-ed residential summer camp in the southern Berkshire Mountains of New York for children ages 7 to 15.

Berkshire Hills is a caring community where your child will make friends, gain independence and learn from a dynamic staff.  At Berkshire Hills, we use the lens of Jewish teaching and the experience of group living to build a strong community that reflects traditional Jewish values.

While we use Jewish language to talk about these values, we believe strongly that every child – regardless of their religion or background – benefits from learning about Integrity (Yosher), Respect (Kavod), Repairing the World (Tikun Olam), Joy (Simcha), Acts of Loving Kindness (Gemilute Chasadim), Nature (Teva), Spirit (Ruach), and Connection to Friends (Divikute Chaverim).

Therefore, we welcome all children, Jewish and non- Jewish, with open arms.

Like all learning at camp, these values are not taught in a classroom – but on the ball field, in a dance class, and around campfires. In this way, campers not only learn about these values – they live them.
