Camp Half Moon

Celebrating Our 98th Camp Season!


Camp Half Moon, located in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts, offers a traditional sleepover camp experience as well as a day camp program for younger campers. Our camp is an exciting and rewarding experience for children of all ages that enhances self-esteem, independence and social values, in addition to providing wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Half Moon’s facilities include a waterfront equipped with sail boats, row boats, canoes and speed boats as well as a sliding board and kayaks. Tennis and basketball courts, a skate park, excellent playing fields, a theater and other indoor areas for rainy day activities are interspersed throughout the grounds. Campers, along with their counselor, are housed in spacious, screened cabins.

Camp Half Moon offers a diversified program in sports, arts and enrichment areas. The camp’s goal is to involve each camper in a variety of the many activities that are offered; therefore, activities are chosen by the camper on a weekly basis. A free period provides the opportunity for campers to participate in activities just for pleasure. Half Moon’s program emphasizes instruction rather than high competition. Campers are given time to practice and are  encouraged to recognize all improvements as a measure of success.


Sleepover camp will run from June 28 through August 15, 2020 with varied session lengths. One and two week “Rookie Sessions” available. Come be a part of the fun as we celebrate 98 years of quality summer camping in the Berkshires!
