Winter Camp runs from 3:00pm Sunday to 10:00am-12:00pm Saturday.
Referral discount! Returning Winter Campers refer a new Winter Camper who registers before Feb 1st, and receive $100 off! If you are new to Winter Camp, tell us which Winter Camper referred you and receive $100 off! Returning Winter Campers can refer multiple new campers and receive multiple discounts! (To qualify for the discount, new Winter Campers may have attended our summer programs, but cannot have previously attended the Winter Camp Residential Program.)
This price includes all accommodation, meals and snacks, equipment usage for activities (Cross country skis, boots, poles, snowshoes, ice skates, tubing hill, etc).
The only costs not included in tuition are the optional Ski/ Snowboard Day Trip to Butternut Ski Area in Great Barrington and any store purchases or associated spending money.
Winter Campers will stay in our winterized lodges at Chimney Corners Camp. These may include the Manor, the Ina Gibson Lodge, Four Seasons and Wellspring Lodge. Activities will take place at both Camp Becket and Chimney Corners Camp.
We have winterized accommodation for up to 165 throughout the season, although we will cap Winter Camp enrollment at a number much lower than that!
Our Winter Camp staff are experienced staff members at the Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA, and are all well-trained to teach the different Winter Activities we offer. Our staff are carefully selected based on past performance with campers in our summer, fall and spring programs. Best of all, these staff know how to have fun. Our activities are instructional, but the staff teach in a fantastic, fun and crazy (but safe) way!
Winter Camp is staffed very similarly to our summer camps. Each cabin group will have a counselor and an assistant counselor that will spend the majority of the day and all evening with the cabin group. We also have a program staff member to organize the program, a nurse to care for all us, and a leadership staff member to give direct supervision and guidance to our LITs and Assistant Counselors.
Boys and Girls will be housed in different buildings, and grouped according to age. Each group will have their own counselor, present throughout the day, and throughout the evening, just like summer camp! Rooms range in size from 4 to 14, depending on the lodge.
