Kids will hardly be able to keep it together on the long, winding drive to Hi-Rock—and not just because of annoying siblings in the backseat. Between the picturesque views, wooden cabins and myriad activities to try, it’s an idyllic camp setting—and every kid knows it. Gender- and age-specific cabins make for a slumber-party–style experience, plus everyone (boys and girls!) comes together for meals and activities. Whether your kiddos are busy scaling a high-ropes course, geocaching in the Berkshires, swimming in the pristine 90-acre lake or playing capture the flag, one thing’s certain: Every summer here is definitely one to remember. Ages 7–16.

I was a camper and later a staff member at YMCA Camp Hi-Rock and it was an incredible experience. Campers get to choose their activities and the camp has everything- waterskiing, sailing, ropes course, hiking on the AT, tennis, drama etc. The staff members are so enthusiastic and caring, they make every moment memorable. They run a shuttle service to NYC, Boston and CT and even have an open house day in the spring for families to come up and visit. I've recommended the place to many friends.
I've also gone up there for group activities during the spring and fall: Women's Wellness Weekend and Family Camp since it makes for such an easy and idyllic escape from the city.
Hi-Rock was actually my very first sleepaway camp experience. I loved staying in the cabins, plus I remember the waterfront being totally amazing (I'm sure it's even cooler now)! I was big into swimming, and I remember the counselors led a swim to a rock fairly far away. I felt super accomplished that I was in the group that got to do that.
