TRYBAL BERKSHIRES 

AUGUST 22–25, 2024

AUGUST 29 – SEPT 1, 2024

Get back to your roots at summer camp for adults

The Berkshires weekend is our most popular getaway, hosted at Eisner Camp in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains, halfway between Boston and NYC. Situated on a sprawling 600-acre estate that served as the former manor of several notable residents, Eisner's landscape integrates historic buildings and modern facilities into a natural setting whose beauty is second to none. Featuring two large heated swimming pools, high and low ropes courses, a giant swing and zipline, manicured fields for outdoor sports, turn-of-the-century barns that house fine arts and dance studios, a sparkling lake, and miles of hiking along the Appalachian Trail, Eisner is the picture-perfect escape for a blissful weekend packed with opportunities for adventure.

Due to high demand for the Berkshires weekends, we are offering two sessions for 2024. Spaces fill up quickly -- there is typically a long waitlist for these camps -- so don't wait until it's too late to register!

ACTIVITIES

You’ll get to customize each day by choosing from over 70 classic and out-of-the-box camp activities. While we encourage you to try something new, you're in charge of your own schedule. Start your morning with sunrise yoga and a live DJ on the dock, or just roll into breakfast in time for the mimosa cheer cart, La Colombe coffee bar, and freshly baked breakfast from a local bagelry. Between electives, check your camp mailbox, grab a snack at Bubbe’s Beer Garden, and embrace activities that make you forget to check your phone. Evening program favorites include Trybal's Got Talent, Are You Smarter than a 90s Kid, Wet Hot American Summer, and Moth Storytelling just to name a few. No matter what you choose, there is surprise and delight layered into each part of the day. This weekend is yours to relax and recharge the way you want. Every year we offer new and reimagined activities unfound anywhere else. Past Berkshires highlights include these and more:

LODGING

Wake up ready to embrace the day's adventures and surprises. We offer two housing options for you to get the best night's sleep. Whether you sign up solo or with a group of friends, are an early riser or crave late-night pillow talk, we honor your rooming preferences and carefully place you into a cabin with likeminded people, who become cabin family before you know it.

CABINS

Cozy up in our modern and spacious cabins. Cabin lodging and linens are included in your registration fee. Each cabin houses 10-12 people (they can fit 24 people, we just keep them roomy!). Everyone gets their own bed and storage cubbies. You can opt for co-ed or same-gender housing. 

Cabins Include:

  • Modern bunk beds 

  • Cozy bedding

  • Spacious bathrooms & showers in each

  • Storage space & balconies

  • Hillside views

private HOUSING

For those wanting a little extra privacy and R&R, private rooms are available in the camp's retreat center, housed in a cozy lodge and historic Manor House. Rooms have private bathrooms and a shared lounge. There is an additional fee per person to stay in private housing. Rooms accommodate single or double occupancy. 

Lodge rooms include:

  • Single beds

  • Private bathrooms (limited rooms)
