Facilities & Meals
Surrounding yourself with family and friends is perhaps the most important way to spend your time, and we have a variety of options for families and family groups to come together here at one of the premier Massachusetts camps in the Berkshires. Whether you have an organized retreat for families in your community, or your a single family that wants to be part of our family camp programs, there are plenty of opportunities throughout the year for you to enjoy an adventurous Massachusetts vacation.
Having a hard time finding fun family vacation spots that everyone agrees on? Consider joining one of the four YMCA Berkshire Family Camps hosted by Berkshire Outdoor Center.
Memorial Day Family Camp - on the Memorial Day long weekend - is the perfect introduction to summer, with barbecues, dances, evening campfires under the stars, and all the traditional camp activities.
Becket Family Camp at Camp Becket is a week-long program in August, and is our most popular family program.
Fall Foliage Family Camp - on Columbus Day Weekend - is held every fall, and includes old favorites, such as Cider Pressing, Pumpkin Carving and all the regular camp activities.
Winter Family Camp - on MLK Jr Day Weekend - is held every winter, and is your opportunity to stay active in the winter, learning to cross-country ski, go snowshoeing and get your family camp fix in the middle of the school year.
Gather together your extended family or a group of families from your town and enjoy a relaxing New England vacation in one of our Family cabins. Choose as many or as few activities as you wish from our menu of choices. Come for a winter weekend of cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating or take an early, affordable family summer get-away and enjoy boating and hiking in beautiful Western Massachusetts.
