Long-time Hale family loves itMy son started as a 6 year old and now he's going to be a 15 year old Leader in Training. For him, the freedom to be active in a country environment, play games, swim, and go boating was important (and he learned a lot about nature along the way). Other kids will be drawn to the specialty camps that offer more intensive experience in mountain biking or outdoor adventure. Regardless, it's a place where your kid can grow and come back to old friends, and where you can know they are safe and enjoying the country only minutes from Boston.
