Boston Parents Paper Honors Moose Hill Camp

LINCOLN, MA—The popular day camp at Mass Audubon’s Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary in Sharon has been chosen one of the “Best of the Best” by the Boston Parents Paper. In its just-released 2013 Family Favorite Awards issue, the award-winning magazine, website, and go-to resource for parents selected Moose Hill as one of its Top 5 in the Day Camp category.
“We feel just wonderful to be honored by Boston Parents Paper,” said Moose Hill Camp director Kay Andberg. “Indeed, this honor validates how we encourage children to connect with nature in fun and engaging ways.”
Stability and continuity are two of the camp’s hallmarks that parents find especially reassuring. Andberg has been director for 20 years, and the camp has been engaging children for more than six decades.
Accredited by the American Camp Association, Moose Hill invites children ages 3-14 to have fun and make friends through a blend of outdoor exploration, hands-on/minds-on activities, creative art projects, and noncompetitive games.
The day camp’s success is reflected in the responses of children and their parents, Andberg said. “In fact, we received an email from a parent who said her pre-school daughter ‘had a blast’ in her very first camp experience and wanted to come back for the August session,” she noted.
“Like the Family Favorite Awards, those kind of reviews are very gratifying, especially for our staff,” Andberg said. “We have top-notch personnel, who are trained to help kids connect with other kids and have a lot of fun.”
