Camper Qs

Can I bring my electronics? 
We have a strict no internet-enabled device policy.  We want you to be present for the Camp Arrow Wood experience—make new friends, get pushed out of your comfort zone, appreciate the outdoors, and grow. Devices like wireless speakers and the mighty, which allow for music to be played without the internet, are encouraged. Other electronic devices will be taken upon arrival and stored until the end of camp.

What time do we wake up? 
Everyone wakes up at 8 AM, campers line up at 8:15, and breakfast is at 8:30. Sundays are brunch days with a late wake up!

Will I have my own bathroom? 
You’ll share a bathroom with the other campers in your cabin or lodge. All cabins and lodges have individual showers.

Parent Qs

What are the transportation options to/from camp? 
For the 2022 season you can drive your child to camp, or they can fly into one of our nearby airports. If your child flies into the Albany, NY (ALB) or Hartford, CT (BDL) airports, we’ll send a shuttle to pick them up and bring them to camp.

What are Camp Arrow Wood’s visiting and communications policies? 
Campers will generally have one scheduled ‘call’ per week which can be done with either Zoom or FaceTime. In addition, you can email or send snail mail to your camper. Campers cannot send email, but they are encouraged to write home.

In 2023 we will have a visiting day (July 15th) for you to see what your camper has been up to! Our Summer 2022 sessions will not have a visiting day.

What medical staff works at camp and what facilities are nearby? What if my child takes medication? 
We have a combination of doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners, as well as athletic trainers working and living on-site. Daily medication and vitamins will be administered under the care and supervision of our medical staff.

Our air-conditioned medical facility includes two private exam rooms, a dedicated medication and treatment area, observation rooms, and ample space for inpatient care. Plus, we’re just a 12-minute drive from Berkshire Medical Center, a level two trauma center.

Where is Camp Arrow Wood located?
We’re in the heart of The Berkshires, MA on the shores of Richmond Pond! Centrally located in Western Massachusetts, we are just a 2-hour drive from Boston, and a 2 ½ hour drive from NYC. Both Albany, NY and Hartford, CT airports are an hour away from Camp Arrow Wood.

What are your dates and rates? 
For summer 2022, we offer a two- or three-week session running from July 8-July 30, 2022. Prices range from $3500-$4500.

How does my child select the activities they want to do? 
Your child will choose their core sports for the sport-intensive first period on a weekly basis. They will choose their third-period elective daily.

Can I rent out Camp Arrow Wood for an event? 
Yes! Our property can be customized for any event experience. Whether it be a family reunion, corporate retreat, sports camp, wedding, musical festival, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, religious group, school program, team-building workshop, or much, much more!
