About

Camping gives boys a foundation for life. At Becket, you are part of a caring community that reinforces the values taught at home. You try lots of new things, participate in fun summer camp activities, learn values that help guide you throughout your life, and make lasting friends. At Camp Becket we offer a traditional, rustic, overnight camp experience.
