Camp Russell organizes campers into age-appropriate groups with a 2:10 staff ratio. Camp Russell offers Day, Sports, and Leader In Training programs. Day Campers have individual schedules that follow an itinerary of activities such as swim time, nature adventures, arts and crafts, and group games. Sports Campers learn how to train as athletes as well as learn new skills for their favorite sports. The Leader In Training (L.I.T) program helps teens learn teamwork-oriented leadership skills and builds self-confidence. L.I.T's are assigned to work with counselors to help with campers while experiencing Camp Russell at its fullest. Camp Russell offers a playground area, soccer and ball fields, outdoor basketball court, in-ground beach pool, a full waterfront area for swimming and boating as well as a new recreation center. Transportation is included with registration. Parents may choose from a list of designated bus stops that best fits their needs. Lunch is provided through the Pittsfield Public School Department.  Additional care options are available for parents who need childcare before and after Camp. (Additional fees apply).
