About

Our facilities include an amphitheater overlooking the lake (perfect for weddings and performance events). The West Wind dining hall with commercial kitchen can serve over 400; a smaller commercial kitchen serves 40. Our Barefoot Ballroom contains a vast hand-built dance floor. Over 50 cabins (each sleeping 4) are organized into small pods with separate bath-houses. The large outdoor festival stage welcomes performances for hundreds to more than a thousand. There are a wide variety of other administrative and sleeping facilities. Most facilities are rustic more than elegant, but fully functional. The beach hosts a large dock making swimming areas manageable for youth. A boathouse manages kayaks, canoes, paddles and life-preservers.

A word about Covid: CTT is currently booking for summer 2021. We welcome individuals and small group rentals such as private retreats, reunions, weddings, and small gatherings beginning in April. We believe that a great many events fit well with our Covid-safe environment, particularly the outdoor spaces and open-air sleeping cabins. CTT adheres to the changing state and local Covid-19 regulations and protocols.  Please reach out if you have any questions about safety and CTT.

CTT was founded in 1967 by the Connecticut Valley Girl Scout Council with the mission of developing strong girls to be respectful, resourceful and make the world a better place. Their verdant forests attracted the musicians, environmentalists and healers of HeARTbeat Collective who came and began offering Unifier Festival on site in 2015.  In 2017 their dream came true when they were joined by Dance New England, who, through creative movement and dance also sought to ignite self-expression in a natural setting. In 2019 Indigenous Elders from around the world joined the growing communities coming together as CTT hosted the Aniwa Gathering.  We were also joined by the inspirational Odyssey Teen Camp. Today, we welcome your community to join the Camp Timber Trails family of communities as we foster the founding girls’ vision of  transformation and sustainability through dance, music, arts, healing, communication and the power of human spirit!
