We offer a range of accommodations, from camping sites to log cabins to our spacious lodges. Meal service is included and we offer well-balanced, family-friendly meals. Vegetarian meals are available and we can accommodate specific dietary requests with advance notice. We can also provide custom menus, though some may incur an additional cost.
We will work with you to choose the activities that best suit your group’s goals and interests.
Activity rates vary with group size and activity. Most activities are $10 per person, per session. However, activity packages can be put together that reduce the per-activity rate. Please call or email David Bjorklund at 413-528-1227 x13 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Here at YMCA Camp Hi-Rock, we take pride in our love of camp and our appreciation of the outdoors. We will work with you to make your retreat both successful and memorable.

Learning to be a leader is a lifelong process. The foundations of a great leader can be built early, but practice and experience allow individuals to adapt and thrive in any situation. In order to work effectively, teams must communicate efficiently and maintain an environment of mutual trust and respect. Hi-Rock Leadership and Team-Building Programs provide your group with unique opportunities to achieve your goals and learn more about each other in a fun and productive environment.
