Camp Berkshire was awarded for its improvement in development and operations. Hector Perez, managing director of Camp Berkshire says, “Our buildings and facilities have gone through some extensive renovation. We have improved the year-round lodging capacity to 152 persons per year. This does not include an additional 80 persons year-round that we will be added when the Montana lodge is completed in 2011.” Camp Berkshire has the capacity to host 375 persons in cabins and lodges during the summer and close to 2,000 on its camp grounds.
Camp Berkshire has improved its operations and services and is the place you will want to be this summer. Perez highlights that they have added some fun activities including: horseback riding, go karts, rock climbing, mountain bikes and BMX, canoeing, kayaks, and paddle boats
This is the second time that Camp Berkshire has received this award—the first award was received in December 2008.
