From our parents:

Buck’s Rock perfects itself more every year! How it works its magic remains a mystery but it all starts with the care, insights, and great instincts of the Buck’s Rock team who create a summer experience of fun that is attuned to each camper’s emotional and creative well being.
— Brenda Brown
Our daughter refers to Buck’s Rock as her home away from home where she feels most comfortable, confident, safe, talented and valued. She has confidence and a strong sense of independence that make us proud. Thank you Buck’s Rock!
— Jennifer Herring-Met
There is an atmosphere at Buck’s Rock that is completely unique and inspiring; you can feel it even just walking around as a visitor. Both of our kids have gained so much experience in terms of their art, and in their personal and social development, from their time at Bucks Rock.
— Simon Young


75 Years of Happy Campers!

Buck's Rock Camp opened in New Milford, Connecticut in 1942 on 125 acres of farmland and rolling hills, originally intended as a refuge for European children fleeing World War II, and has grown to host over 300 campers each summer including second, third and even fourth generation Buck's Rockers. In 2017 Buck's Rock celebrated its 75th anniversary.
