North River Nature Day Camp in Marshfield encourages children’s lasting curiosity about the natural world. Campers have fun, make friends, and come to better understand and appreciate nature through outdoor play and discovery at our 225-acre wildlife sanctuary. 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. Small group sizes allow us to provide a high-quality educational experience and a welcoming, supportive environment. Daily activities include trail explorations, habitat investigations, hands-on experiments, wildlife observation, creative games and crafts, and more. Learn More >

Our 225-acre wildlife sanctuary provides a magnificent natural space to explore and learn. Campers are encouraged to exercise their curiosity, engage with others, and participate in hands-on, inquiry-based activities. Learn More >


Staff are carefully selected for their maturity and ability to work with children in an outdoor setting. All undergo background checks, are first aid and CPR certified, and participate in safety, child development, and natural history training prior to start of camp. Learn More >
