Summer Camp Sampler 2013

Summer Camp Sampler 2013

Spring may have taken its time coming to the Berkshires, but that doesn't mean that planning for the summer can be postponed. Summer camps fill their rosters early! We thought you might enjoy a heads-up on some of the camps that catch our interest. Overnight and day camps, sports camps, theatre camps and music camps dot the region with places and programs suited just to the interests of your child or grandchild. We have even listed a camp for young entrepreneurs...the business leaders of tomorrow. Peruse the list and follow some of the links, we think you'll wish you were heading off to camp this year.

With thanks to Don for this banner photo of the final curtain call of the Nutmeg's Summer Intensive Program at Jacob's Pillow on their newly renovated Inside/Out Stage. It's a terrific series of free performances from emerging talent and established companies by invitation.
