Welcome to our Winter Family Retreat - catch the most of the winter with us! Spend a weekend, celebrate the Shabbat, bring the entire family with you and enjoy! We've got plenty of activities for all ages. This time, all outdoor sports equipment is also included: That's relevant for Cross Country skiing (boots, helmets, skis), snowshoeing, skating, downhill tubing. Everything exists and available free of charge for all.
Our host is The Berkshire Outdoor Center. 748 Hamilton Road, Becket, MA 01223
Enjoy 1500 acres of pure wilderness mixed with man-made enchantments. Beautiful Mountain Region, where every corner is scenic and tranquiling.
This time, you may choose to stay the entire weekend with us, or just one night - Friday night, or Saturday night. We'd like, of course to see you for the entire weekend, but we understand that there could be different circumstances for each family and we are OK with them.
The Food is Kosher Style - similar, as it was last winter retreat at the Eisner Camp. In fact, this place has been recommended to us by our last year Host and we think, it'll suit us very well!
All major diets and food allergies will be considered. Please, do not forget to mention yours in the application. Most common are Diabetes, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy, and Vegetarian.
The Facilities are NUT-FREE, so please, do not bring nuts with you to your bedrooms.
Coffee, Tea, and sample snacks will be served all day in the Dining Hall. 6 meals included, if you stay the entire Weekend.
All activities, classes, outdoor equipment included in your price.
No pets, except for the Service Animals, can be brought to the retreat territory.
All living quarters are heated, each with their own heat regulator. All full bathrooms are inside the houses. Each house has some sort of a living room, sometimes, even with the fireplace that can be started at night. There are also 2 large fireplaces rooms near the dining hall, for larger gatherings. Plenty of activities will be running as inside, so also outside, so make sure, you bring warm clothes for the outside and sport clothes for the inside activities. Don’t forget your swimsuit and your beach tower. Most brave will be swimming in the lake, others cheering them up from a cozy Sauna, conveniently located just above the lake.
All beds are either twin bunk or just twin. You will need to bring your own blankets, pillows, and linens, or sleeping bags. The rooms are clean and warm.
Some bathrooms are handicap accessible, so please, let us know if you require one.
The full schedule of activities will be available closer to the camp dates, when we know how many groups we will create for kids and adults.
This time, we’re open our doors not only to families with kids and teens, but also, for young adults (no kids) and we’ll be creating their own exciting schedule, and they will probably get their own “living quarters” so they have plenty of time to mingle and enjoy their weekend, should we get at least a few signed up.
As for the volunteers, we’re still considering who we need and how many, and they’re going to be just Teens, not adults. Once we agreed on the number, we will open volunteers registration, as well.
