Camp Shepard Summer Camp


YMCA Camp Shepard is a 105 acre outdoor center located at the foot of the Berskshire mountains and is owned/operated by the YMCA of Greater Westfield. We have a programming opportunity for everyone including our 9 week summer camp, school field trips, church group outings, corporate retreats, family reunions, and outdoor education classes.

Our Purpose:

Camp Shepard Day Camp is designed to build growth for our youth and community. Campers will establish everlasting friendships each day while have an outdoor education experience. Our goal is to provide a new, safe, and fun experience for all ages and to allow our campers to grow while having the best summer possible!
