Since 1645, Roxbury Latin has offered able and aspiring boys of Greater Boston a distinctive education. The school's 117-acre campus includes more than 50 acres of beautiful, undisturbed forest, where BNC campers will discover and learn about the natural environment. When campers are not outside investigating vernal pools, picking blueberries, or exploring wooded trails, they will be creating and playing in Roxbury Latin's classrooms, art studio, theater, and state-of-the-art gymnasium.

Owls (age 5), Hawks (age 6 and 7) and Falcons (age 8 and 9), each have their own weekly nature program, that is engaging and age appropriate.
