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, and learn how to live and participate in a community away from the pressures of everyday life and school and make lifelong friendships. To do this we create an environment in which the kids have the freedom to choose their own activities and 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 temperament needed to lead a cabin and to make 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.

There are so many different ways to connect with peers, and I love helping campers take a chance to bond in new ways. From the small things, such as the secret handshake that my whole cabin used one summer, to personal breakthroughs on stage. Nashoba excels in breaking down barriers and helping everyone feel included. It’s a pleasure to share those moments of discovery and growth with campers every day.

There were so many, it is hard to pick just one… Seeing the sheer joy on the faces of the kids (especially the internationals who did not necessarily understand English) when they got to throw their favorite counselors into the lake fully clothed during Counselor Hunt. And who can forget The Australian Bobsled Team at campfire!
