Camp Half Moon has been providing children from around the world with a fun-filled, memorable summer camp experience since 1922. We are a camp community that values and encourages each child's individuality; a community where campers not only have fun and develop lifelong friendships but also gain confidence and take pride in their accomplishments.

We believe in giving children sound learning skills, based on consistent skill improvement, rather that rigorous competition. Children gain confidence when they are encouraged to see even small improvements as personal success. The essence of this experience enhances a child's self-esteem, independence and social values in addition to providing wonderful memories which often last a lifetime.


Camp Half Moon located in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. We offer two programs, a Traditional Sleepaway Camp experience for children 6-16, and a day camp program for local campers ages 3-15.

Camp Facilities, Staff & Safety

Set on the shores of Lake Buel in Monterey, Massachusetts, the Half Moon campus is beautiful, wooded and sprawling. We host a range of activities from water sports, to zip lines, to yoga, basketball, soccer, you name it.

We maintain a camper staff ratio of 5 to 1. There is a health clinic on site with two registered nurses at all times. All of our water areas are monitored and manned by certified lifeguards. We have a hospital and ambulance service a mere six miles away with Macony Pediatrics on 24-hour call. Your child will be in good hands at Camp Half Moon.
