What we're all about...

Berkshire Hills Emanuel Camps is a vibrant co-ed camp for children ages 7-15, located two hours from NYC in the foothills of the Berkshires. We pride ourselves in providing our campers with the best cultural Jewish experience, in an atmosphere infused with acceptance and friendship. We celebrate diversity by having Jewish children from around the country, North America and Israel. With hundreds of surrounding acres, BHEC campers appreciate a safe and ideal setting for hiking and overnights. Campers also enjoy our pristine 60 acre private lake for swimming, boating and kayaking and our heated pool for daily swim instruction. Creative drama, music and art programs fill the day along side our non-competitive sports program including softball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, rope course, etc. Our older units benefit from group mini-excursions during the summer outside of camp. BHEC staff, selected for their passion and professionalism includes many former campers as well as Jewish University students from around the world. A mature adult staff oversees each of our divisions and key program areas. Our chefs cook up a great variety of kosher food for all palettes and special diets are accommodated. Our new infirmary is staffed by accomplished full time, live in nurses and rotating doctors. We are proud that all our campers and staff recognize BHEC to be their home away from home. Retreats & conferences accepted.
