Shire Village Camp
Founded in 1972, Shire Village Camp was described by The Boston Globe as a camp that "...espouses liberal values; it's nonprofit, nonsexist, nonracist, nonhomophobic, nonsectarian, and noncompetitive." A coeducational residential summer camp for 7 to 13 year olds, it also offers vegetarian meals and has a policy to avoid chemical additives and preservatives in their food. Shire Village Camp is located on 96 acres of beautiful hills and woodland in Cummington, Massachusetts. On the grounds are two riding rings, a tennis court, athletic fields, a filtered pool and a large brook which flows into a private pond and into the Westfield River which flows through the campgrounds. Traditional activities offered are theatre, music and dance, arts and crafts, film and photography, swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, gymnastics, field trips, and nature exploration. In addition, the camp offers tai chi, shiatsu, meditation, yoga and emphasizes a nonsexist, noncompetitive approach to sports activities which include archery, soccer, tennis, softball, volleyball, basketball and Frisbee. This approach has created a more relaxed atmosphere and according to a camp counselor, more girls are playing sports and more boys are trying to motivate them.

Many Shire village campers return year after year and former campers have sent their children. Some return to work as counselors, support staff and administrators. The camp boasts a popular teen staff training program and several former campers are now serving on the Board of Directors. Sessions begin the first week of July through the end of August and introductory two-week sessions are available for children 7 to 9 years of age. Discounts are available for siblings and early tuition payment.
