Providing a safe and supportive environment for children aged seven through sixteen, Berkshire Hills Eisenberg Camp is a values-based community in which campers learn from its staff as well as from each other. Established in 1931, Berkshire Hills is situated on 640 acres that includes Miller Pond, a sixty-acre private lake, as well as a gym, recreation building, theater, art studio, movie room and dining hall. Through Tikkun Olam, the concept of repairing the world through community service, campers learn the importance of giving back. Every Saturday morning all campers and staff participate in fun, age-appropriate community service projects, which have included making bookshelves for victims of natural disasters, creating games and books for hospitalized children, as well as preparing bagged lunches for the less fortunate. The hope is that each camper will return to their respective communities and find a way to make a difference. In keeping with the spirit of Tikkun Olam, at the end of the 2022 camp season, Berkshire Hills donated 4,149 pounds of food (the equivalent of 3,485 meals) to various Hudson Valley agencies and organizations through FeedHV.
