Moms, we are SO ready for summer and we know you are as well. As we wish our way to warmer weather, it is time to start thinking about summer camp and we want to share two great options that need to be on your radar! We’re sure you’ve heard of the Trustees but if you haven’t, the Trustees is a local non-profit that protects and cares for nearly 25,000 acres across Massachusetts. They also run two local summer camps based out of Hingham and we’ve got the scoop on each offering! Think outdoor adventures, farm animals, gardening and nature. Plus, new full day offerings, age specific and mixed age programs— perfection!
WORLD’S END CAMP
Word’s End Camp is geared to the curious and creative child that loves spending time outside in nature.
Each session is started with a greeting circle and a warm-up game. Campers then set out exploring the wilds of World’s End. They may be learning to navigate using a compass, exploring the shore line for hermit crabs, or discovering the world of birds through handmade binoculars. No matter what adventure is had the day is filled with fun games and activities based on a weekly nature theme.
They offer age specific camps with age appropriate themes to build on each year. They also offer a mixed age program for campers ages 7-11 called Trekkers. This is great for family or friend groups that all want to attend camp together but might have a range of ages. World’s End Camp offers both half day or full day sessions.
WEIR RIVER FARM CAMP
Weir River Farm Camp is for the child that loves spending time with animals and enjoys exploring nature.
Each session starts with a greeting circle and a warm-up game. Campers then head to the barnyard to help with one of many farm chores like collecting eggs, feeding the pigs, mucking the stalls, brushing the goats, checking on the sheep, or tending the children’s garden. The fun doesn’t stop in the barnyard, campers also enjoy games, crafts, and activities. No matter what the day brings there is never a dull moment on the farm.
They offer a few types of camp programs. There are age-specific programs with age-appropriate themes that build each year. These programs are offered for either full day or half day sessions. They also offer a mixed age program for campers ages 5-10 called Farm Helpers. This is great for family or friend groups that all want to attend camp together but might have a range of ages.
