Our home -

Just 2 hours away from New York!

Through the valleys and winding roads, Kimama Halfmoon can be found nestled right on Lake Buel in beautiful Monterey, Massachusetts. Halfmoon is perfectly located and feels like a remote, peaceful upstate getaway. Camp Halfmoon is proudly Camp Kimama’s home in the Berkshires.

OLYMPIC POOL
PRIVATE LAKE
BUNKS
POOL

Our olympic size pool is a camp favorite, where campers can swim, play, and socialize. Each camper must pass a comprehensive swim test, and a lifeguard is always present, but that goes without saying!

LAKE

Located  on Lake Buel, at Kimama Halfmoon the lake and its backdrop serve as a huge part of everyday camp life. Via our private dock, campers can, wakeboard, tube, kayak, SUP, and so much more. Our dining hall overlooks the waters, and dinner often comes with the greatest show in town, the most stunning sunsets in the Northeast.

HEALTH CENTER

With health and wellness as a top priority at camp, our cozy and fully equipped health center is staffed by a nurse that sleeps on site, and is available 24/7 to our camper’s needs.

BUNKS

Our bunks serve as our camper’s home for their time at camp which is why it is so important for us to ensure that they are clean, orderly, and comfortable. We encourage our campers to fully unpack when they arrive, so that they can settle in. Bunks vary in size and are divided into boys and girls, with a designated counselor.

The Kimama Halfmoon facility is packed with several locations to play a wide range of sports. The sports field houses one of two basketball courts, a volleyball court, a batting cage, rolling green fields for soccer, softball, baseball, and so much more!

SPORTS FIELD
DINING HALL

One of our favorites, our dining hall is a homage to 100 years of camp life, with plaques dating back to the camp's establishment decorating the hall’s walls. With a kosher state of the art kitchen, we make sure that the space that campers visit three times a day is clean, comfortable, and caters to every dietary restriction. During meal time, one can hear the buzz of chatter, cheers, and music.

SKATE PARK

Slip on those vans and grab a board. Our mini skate park has all the ramps you need to show us what you have!

HIGH ROPES COURSE

Get closer to nature by touching the tree-tops in our high ropes course. Our high ropes facility has all of the most up to date equipment and at least three professionals to guide and monitor every step.

POTTERY BARN

There is nothing like getting your hands into some clay. Our pottery barn facility has all of the tools and materials needed, with an on site kiln to turn campers’ creations into a real work of art.

ARTS & CRAFTS

It’s all about expressing yourself! Our art room is jam packed with supplies with an art program emphasizing recycled art and sustainable creation. Campers are encouraged to open their minds and challenge themselves to explore materials and see things differently!

HIGH ROPES COURSE
BONFIRE
GYMNASTICS STUDIO

Balance beams and trampolines, our fully equipped gymnastics studio has everything you need to practice your summersaults, cartwheels and everything in between!

THEATER

The creeks of the wooden stage, the curtains that open to reveal our very creations! Our theater is a building that carries with it so much tradition of imaginations, skits, song and dance.

BONFIRE

Sitting around a campfire is inevitably a huge part of camp life, not to mention a tradition at Kimama Halfmoon. With two cozy campfire set ups, whether a group is looking for an intimate smores bake or a space for our weekly camp-wide bonfire, we make it happen.

EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER

It is our belief that every age group needs something a little different, and that is why, for pioneers and tigers amongst us, we opened an early childhood center equipped with everything our youngest need to feel safe and at home.
