Camp Greylock is a boys' summer camp located in Becket, Massachusetts. The land was purchased in the fall of 1915, and the opening summer was 1916. The founders were three brothers, George, Gabriel ("Doc"), and Lou Mason. It is currently the oldest continuously operating, private summer all-boys camp in Massachusetts.[1]

During the summer of 2015, the camp will be celebrating its 100th anniversary summer. Plans are still being formulated.
