2020 Annual Campaign

We need camp and camp needs us! Alumni and friends from across the country are asked to submit the Smith Park of New York Annual Campaign to close the budget gap caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Camp WA WA Segowea is located on over 400 acres of pristine wilderness surrounding Harmon Pond in the Berkshire mountains in Massachusetts. Campers from across the country have come for generations to experience a classic American camping adventure

 

Overnight campers sleep in one of our 11 chestnut cabins on “cabin row.” The cabins are simple structures with bunk beds, electricity, large screened windows, & under the bed storage space for suitcases or trunks.

 

 

Campers & staff eat together in our lakeside dining hall.  Meals are served family style at cabin tables & offer a variety of options.  Breakfast includes a cereal, yogurt, & fresh fruit in addition to the main & side dishes. Lunch & dinner offer a soup and salad bar &peanut butter and jelly station in addition to the main course & sides. 

Our Cabin Counselors are summer super heroes who lead cabin groups and assist with daily program facilitation to ensure that this summer is a treasured experience for all campers! Camp staff are committed to the health and safety of each camper at camp.



An experienced pediatric nurse oversees all campers medical needs.  Staff are trained in CPR, First Aide, bully prevention, and development needs of different campers.  All cabins maintain a ratio of at least 1 head counselor to 8 campers, and have an additional junior counselor, or second head counselor, to assist with daily needs.

Not Camp Camp  Summer 2020 is going to be a bit different, but to keep staff, campers, parents and new friends connected during our first summer of not being able to offer in-person programming, we are getting together on-line on Wednesdays and over the weekend. We are also offering camp rentals for the month of July.

Smith Park of NY is devoted to the preservation and operation of Camp WA WA Segowea, the protection of its natural surroundings and historical integrity, and the continuation of traditional resident camping that improves the spiritual, mental, social, and physical attributes of young people in a supportive community.
