WelcomeRates & Dates • About Camp • Day Camp Policies

At Blue Hills Nature Camp in Milton, our unique location atop scenic Chickatawbut Hill gives our camp access to the largest open space within 35 miles of Boston, the 7,000-acre Blue Hills Reservation. Campers ages 5–15 are invited to discover nature through hands-on exploration, creating art, and hiking the trails. Each session features age-appropriate activities intended to deepen a child’s understanding and awareness of the natural world. Small camp groups and experienced, caring staff create a friendly and safe atmosphere on “the hill.”
