Camp Ashmere has received campership assistance funds from the Northern Berkshire United Way to provide a camp experience for northern Berkshire youth.

The camp runs five weeks of day camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and offers bus transportation from North Adams along the Route 8 corridor every day.

Overnight camps are designed for campers of varying age groups. There are two weeks of senior camp for youth going into grades 8-12 from July 6 to 19, a Sports/Splash camp from July 20 to 26, and two junior camps for youth going into grades 4-8 from July 27 to Aug. 9.
