With over a century of dedication to character development, Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA lives by its mission of “Helping youth discover their potential through life-changing experiences and relationships”.
Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA believes that everyone deserves opportunities to explore, learn, and grow in a supportive environment. Community - they build enduring relationships and support one another. Commitment - they take responsibility for themselves, one another, and the common good. Belonging - they strive to create a culture where all people are welcomed and respected. Compassion - they treat one another with empathy, honesty, and integrity.
Located on 1,350 beautiful acres in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, Camp Becket for boys+ and Chimney Corners Camp for girls+ are four-week overnight camps with rich traditions and commitment to character development.
