Located on a 52-acre tract of state forestland in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains, Camp Howe offers an array of traditional recreational pursuits to both nondisabled and special-needs children. Among the camp's activities are a challenge course, wall and rock climbing, skeet shooting, and farm and leadership programs. Campers ages 7-20 with various physical special needs may enroll in the ECHO Program, which promotes a greater degree of independence, encourages social integration within the camp and teaches leisure skills.
