Historical Information about the Camp

Berkshire Boys Camp's history begins in 1939 and continued until it closed its door in 1973.  During that time thousands of boys experienced the camp and participated in camp life.  From the very humble beginnings of the first cabin, overlooking Watson Pond (officially called Creek Pond) and the first four shelter cabins, to the ambitious final project to build a new dining hall, the camp provided an exciting escape for the boys to learn about nature, gain skills in many subjects, and grow and mature.

The camp meant different things to each boy, but it changed every one of us.  For many it was a place to grow and develop into the men we became.
