FAMILY CAMP 2018: AUGUST 20 – 26
In 2013, YMCA Camp Hi-Rock was featured in a CBS This Morning Saturday piece on family camping – click here to see the video. Hi-Rock has also been rated one of the nation’s top 50 Family Camps in Arthur Frommer’s Guide! We offer activities for every age and ability level. Families have private cabins or rooms. Flexible schedules mean that you and your family choose what you want to do! Relax on our sand beach and enjoy boating on our private, 90-acre lake. Face your fears on the high ropes course or take a hike on the Appalachian Trail. Our enthusiastic staff and unforgettable location will make you want to come back year after year. Family Camps are a fun and affordable way to vacation together. A family of four can stay the whole week, with meals and activities included for around $1,000! Shorter stays are available as well.
Mini Alumni Reunion 2018: TBD
Get a group of old friends together and join your fellow Hi-Rock Alumni to celebrate the best of fall in the Berkshires with a host of activities:
-Specialty fall crafts, hay rides, high & low ropes, and cozy campfires with s’mores
-Scenic hikes with breathtaking views of famous Berkshire fall foliage
-Take a stroll through our very own pumpkin patch
-Everyone is welcome: families, individuals, kids, adults & seniors!
-This event is running at the same time as Fall Family Fun, those who register for the Alumni reunion will be housed close together so that they can gather around campfires and reminisce together!
Please visit our Family Camps page for more information about Hi-Rock events and how to register!
Fall Work Weekend: November 3rd-5th 2017
Please join us for a great weekend with fellow Hi-Rockers. We’ll be getting camp ready for winter, tackling some important camp improvement projects and enjoying catching up with Hi-Rock friends. We’ll have jobs for all skill levels. Accommodations and meals will be provided. Children who would like to join us must be accompanied by a parent or other supervising adult. Volunteers are welcome for all or part of the weekend. Meals served will include Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. Work projects will conclude Sunday morning by noon. Housing with heat is limited and it will be very chilly so please register! Once the housing with heat is full we won’t be able to accept any overnight volunteers. Please contact Heather with any questions or special requests.
