See it All on This Boot Camp-Style Tour of Berkshires Culture

A friend in Lenox has a tradition for her summer houseguests she calls Berkshire Boot Camp. Soon after visitors arrive, they embark at madcap speed on a 36-hour tour of the region’s artistic and cultural offerings. Her approach is emblematic of how seriously (or, perhaps, mock-seriously) Berkshire residents take the fine and performing arts. It’s also emblematic of just how many cultural opportunities there are during the too-short summer weekends. If you stop too much — or sleep too much — you are bound to miss some Tony-nominated actor or Pulitzer Prize-winning drama or musical extravaganza. Why miss out? Choose a themed boot camp from the list below and head west — if, that is, you think you can handle the pace. Read more about boot camp style tours throughout the Berkshires >>
