At North River Nature Camp in Marshfield, children ages 4.5 to 14 are encouraged to explore their curiosity about the natural world. Campers have fun, make friends, and experience nature through outdoor play and discovery at our 225-acre wildlife sanctuary. Small group sizes allow us to provide a high-quality educational experience and a welcoming, supportive environment. Each day a new adventure awaits!


Weekly sessions have campers ages 4.5–14 discovering and learning about habitats and wildlife found on the South Shore. Daily activities include trail explorations, habitat investigations, hands-on experiments, wildlife observation, creative games and crafts, and more. Learn More >
