It is with pleasure that I welcome you to Nashoba North. At Nashoba North we are passionate about youth development and the important role that summer camp can play in developing well-rounded young people. We offer our campers the opportunity to explore new activities, gain an appreciation for nature, make lifelong friendships and learn how to live and participate in a community away from the pressures of everyday life and school. We create an environment in which the kids have the freedom to choose their own activities and we provide the structure and support needed to allow them to succeed. A huge part of this is our staff. We hire older collegians who not only have an expertise in the activity that they teach but also the character and temperament essential to leading a cabin and making camp fun. After all, for kids, camp is all about having fun & making friends. Nashoba North is a great place to do both of these things.

My very first Arts Night! The talent, creativity and confidence of all the campers who share their abilities with the camp community instantly captivated me.
