Camp Description

Located in the heart of the Berkshires, Camp Mah-Kee-Nac is an overnight camp for boys in Lenox, Massachusetts. The spirit of Mah-Kee-Nac lies in a strong commitment to our community, where campers and staff feel supported, challenged, and encouraged to participate in an action-packed day of sports, outdoor adventure, waterfront, media, and the arts. Through these activities and our elective-based program, campers build confidence by experiencing success. Our boys discover the power of their true selves and the individual role they play as part of the greater community. 

Mah-Kee-Nac is a full season camp, however, we also offer the convenience of shorter sessions (3 or 4 weeks) for families who aren’t ready to commit to a full summer, or whose plans may never include a full season at camp. We also offer a 1-week mini mak session to help campers get their feet wet.

Our community is guided by a set of values that shape experiences.  Campers learn that a balance of friendship, respect, perseverance, shared pride, and leadership, not only strengthen our community but aid in developing life long skills in each camper.

We believe that Camp is a place where each and every camper can experience great success.  We work hard to recognize what makes each camper unique and important. We set campers up for as many of those experiences as possible, and then we celebrate them. it’s actually very easy. taking the time to do it is the hard part.  We make it a priority.  Our goal is to make every camper’s summer experience EXTRAORDINARY!
