Hi Rock 2YMCA Camp Hi-Rock is a sleep-away camp located in Western Massachusetts. We are nestled among 1,000 acres in the Berkshire Mountains, surrounded by conservation forest, and centered around our pristine, private, ninety-acre lake. This gives us the ideal backdrop for the wide variety of activities we offer, which include swimming, climbing, water skiing, archery, sailing and arts & crafts among many others. Through the values of the YMCA, Camp Hi-Rock is dedicated to the growth and development of all of the participants we serve. We seek to help each camper develop his or her sense of personal worth and responsibility as a cooperative member of a group. In addition, we want campers to discover, learn, cultivate new skills, develop healthy lifestyles, create meaningful relationships, and become more caring, honest, respectful and responsible people.

Visit us at the Fairfield YMCA to speak face to face with a camp representative, view camp videos and slides, and register on the spot!

Thurs. Feb 23, 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm or Sun. Mar 19, 9 am – 12:00 pm
