Operated by Mass Audubon on a 153-acre tract alongside Hubbard Pond, Wildwood conducts multidimensional programs focusing on active exploration of the natural world. Campers ages 9-14 examine stars and planets, plot courses and build shelters, fish, track animals, plant seeds and paint pictures. Each week, campers choose an activity and spend the week exploring one topic in depth. Teen adventure trips (ages 14-17) include brief service projects and meetings with environmental professionals. Campers entering grades 10-12 may enroll in the Leaders-In-Training Program, which consists of workshops, directed group activities, personal reflection, or participation in one- to two-week adventure trips.
