Our Campus

Our 116-acre campus located in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Connecticut, surrounded by hilly farmland and quaint New England towns, is a true oasis where campers can find their best selves, belong to an inclusive community, develop a love for nature and the arts, and discover their own passions.


Our Bunks

Campers live in bunks with 4 to 6 cozy wooden bunk beds per room. Counselors live in adjacent shared rooms. Each housing area has its own bathroom facility with private stalls and showers. Campers tidy their own spaces, and a professional cleaning staff cleans the toilets and showers daily. Our youngest campers live in Bulova House and Simon House, historic buildings which feature dorm-style housing. All of our bunks have shelves and hanging areas for campers to store their clothes and personal belongings. Electrical outlets are available so that campers can plug in fans, alarm clocks, radios, or recharge small electronics.

Around Camp

 The Gong is the symbol of Buck's Rock. The Gong tells us when to wake up, when to eat, when to get creative in the shops, when performances begin, and when to go to bed. It's also great for taking selfies.
