Bauercrest Foundation

Ensuring the traditions and legacy of
Camp Bauercrest well into the future


ABOUT Bauercrest foundation

Camp Bauercrest Foundation, Inc. was founded to promote youth sports, health, education, and well-being by supporting Camp Bauercrest, a nonprofit traditional camp for Jewish boys. Camp Bauercrest is located in Amesbury, Massachusetts.

Camp Bauercrest, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) public charity, was founded in 1931. Today it operates an overnight sports and team building camp on the shores of Lake Attitash in Amesbury, Massachusetts. Campers participate in land sports, water sports, field trips, educational and elective activities over a period that ranges from 14 days to 7 weeks, depending upon the session chosen by the camper. Special activities include academic and religious tutoring.

Camp Bauercrest’s mission is to develop and strengthen campers on and off the field through sportsmanship, teamwork, achievement, and responsibility. Camp Bauercrest promotes activities that stretch campers’ physical and creative abilities while providing positive role models with its trained counselor staff. It believes that children grow best in a secure and safe environment where, within boundaries, they can practice making choices and taking risks, while being supported and guided by caring staff.
