Overnight Programs at Blue Hills

Kids looking out from observation tower

An exciting opportunity to experience the Blue Hills like so few others have—after dark! Spend your time enjoying dinner; a night hike to observe the night sky and search for nocturnal animals; live animal encounters; a camp fire; fun activities; and breakfast. All while spending the night on top of Chickatawbut Hill in our own dormitory.

There are two types of overnights—group overnights and family overnights. Call our Education Department at 617-333-0690 x5226 if you have any questions or would like more information.
