Campers in grades 2-6 develop wilderness and naturalist skills at Assabet River Camp. During one-week sessions, campers enjoy outdoor activities such as canoeing, tracking, fishing and archery.
Kids gain confidence as they explore the trails, forest and pond within the 2,200 acre Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge. They learn from counselors, get a close-up look at endangered species and conservation efforts and learn about different ecosystems.
Students in grades 9-12 develop leadership skills by working alongside counselors and sharing knowledge of nature with younger campers. Mandatory training in late June provides child development, safety and best practices training. A two-session commitment is required to participate as a CIT. Additional sessions may be attended at no charge.
Parents and caregivers can drop-off and pick-up campers at Drumlin Farm in Lincoln. The Drumlin-to-Assabet shuttle departs the Farm at 8:30am and returns at 3:15pm.
Financial aid is available based on demonstrated need and availability of funds. Scholarships are limited to one session per child. Download an application.
