New England Base Camp


Let's Play Outside! New England Base Camp in the Blue Hills near Boston operates year-round outdoor camp-style activities. Saturdays in the fall, winter and spring, the campground is open for exploring. And in July-August, New England Base Camp runs seven weeks of Summer Camp. Each week, we run 2 camps, one for grades 1-5, and one with a special high adventure theme for grades 6-12. 
Campers will swim, learn shooting sports, build a campfire, learn wilderness skills and even do some outdoor cooking and bouldering or climbing.
