Founded in 1928, Camp Sloane is located on 270 acres in the Northwest corner of CT (just 2.5 hours from NYC), in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains. We live in canvas-walled, platform tents (think 'cabins with canvas walls'), experiencing all that the great outdoors has to offer. We firmly believe that camp is for all, & everything that happens here is done with our core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, & Responsibility in mind, as well as our camp motto of ‘Others’.


Each summer, we welcome over 700 campers, ages 8-16 (rising grades 4-11), from all over New England and the Northeast, and around the world. We have a great mix of new campers and campers who have spent multiple summers at Sloane. Our campers come from a diverse range of backgrounds and exhibit behaviors typical of their ages.


Our co-ed camp helps kids 'unplug' from technology (no phones allowed!) so they can make even better connections with staff and each other. For our campers, being at Sloane is a chance to get away from all the stresses of school and life and just have fun. We provide a choice-based, progressive program that fits the individual needs and interests of each camper - in all of our activities, we strive to empower campers with the confidence and character they need to reach their full potential.


Every summer, we hire around 100 college students and young professionals from around the world to join our team. We look for staff with positive attitudes, strong work ethics, caring personalities, and a passion for working with children. Many of our staff are former campers, bringing with them a sense of tradition, while our new staff members are a great source of energy and fresh ideas.
