Most parents would agree that their children spend too much time indoors, staring at screens and monitors. Summers at Lenox are a time to unplug and get outside. There’s no better place than this lakefront, mountain retreat, with campfires, tents, ropes courses, climbing walls, and plenty of action in the great outdoors. The adventure staff receives a four-day certification training session before regular staff orientation begins. Under their supervision, campers learn team building and bond tightly with fellow adventurers.

Camp Lenox is located 1700’ above sea level on a pristine fresh water lake called Shaw Pond. Our waterfront program offers sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, scuba, tubing, and fishing. There’s so much to do here that campers could spend their entire summer on, in, or around the water. The program is supervised by the attentive eyes of “Admiral” James Johnston, our 36-year Waterfront Director, who personally cross-trains all waterfront staff and leads one of the most dynamic programs at camp.
