Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA Berkshire Outdoor Center


בר מצווה, בת מצווה

Berkshire Outdoor Center is proud to host several Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah celebrations annually. Our role in the event is usually limited to hosting the family and guests, as well as running the camp activities. Much of the overall planning and ceremony is done by the family of the Bar Mitzvah/Bat Mitzvah.


Kosher-Style Food Service

Our Food Service is excellent, and our fantastic chefs are able to prepare gourmet Kosher-Style meals in our beautiful dining halls. All the items in the meal for the B'Nai Mitzvah celebrations are certainly approved Pareve, but we refer to the meal as Kosher-Style, as our kitchen themselves are not Kosher, only the ingredients that make up the meal.

Fantastic Activities

Can you imagine having your Bar Mitzvah at Camp Becket? Imagine bringing all your friends and sharing this beautiful place with them. You could go swimming, canoeing, do some archery, climb on the climbing tower, go on hikes, play basketball, tennis, volleyball or disc golf. You could do anything you like, you could even stay overnight in Camp Becket cabins, or even Gibson Hall!

Or can you imagine your Bat Mitzvah at Chimney Corners! You could swim in Smith Pond, play basketball, volleyball and tennis, do some archery, hike around the pond, climb on the Alpine Tower or Indoor Climbing Wall. The possibilities are endless!

You could even come up in the middle of winter and stay in our winterized lodges. You could go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and ice skating with our professional, dedicated staff!

And at any time of the year, we can have a nice big campfire with S'Mores!
