"What do I want to do today?"
As a Montessori-inspired summer camp, we believe in giving campers the freedom and encouragement to pursue what interests them most. To that end, Buck's Rock provides teenagers and junior campers with a vast array of studios, equipment and materials. Complementing our facilities is a staff of experienced and talented artists, teachers and craftspeople selected with care based upon their proven abilities in working harmoniously with children.
Since we at Buck's Rock understand that young people benefit from adult guidance to best use their freedoms and make good choices, we offer an impressive camper/staff ratio of two to one.
Our summer sleepaway camp living areas are supervised by guidance or house counselors who reside with the campers, provide leadership, stimulate initiative and encourage participation in camp activities. In working with campers at Buck's Rock Performing and Creative Arts Camp, we aim to guide campers, not force them, by teaching them in a supportive, non-competitive environment. Our staff shares this philosophy, and the large number who return to Buck's Rock every summer ensures the continuity of our programs.
