... shares 500 acres of woodlands, fields and streams with our Hilltop site, both in Charlton, Massachusetts. Located on beautiful Prindle Pond, our Pondside location is a wonderful place to experience Nature’s Classroom. Hiking along one of the trails, students are reminded that American Indians and early colonists hiked along this same Bay Path more than three centuries ago.

.Our modern yet rustic facility offers flexible living accommodations. Students can be housed in small rooms at the Center and the Lodge, with small rooms of four students each, or they can stay in the Ranger building, with 20 students in two large rooms.


The Center and the Lodge have large social rooms on the lower level for indoor group activities or just rest and relaxation. Each large room in the Ranger building has an attached room for chaperones.





This year-round facility is a favorite site for team-building, with a terrific low-ropes course right in the center of the 500 acre property.



Our Pondside facility shares 500 acres of woodlands, fields and streams with our Hilltop site in Charlton, as well as a spacious indoor gymnasium. The Pavillion building, housing the gym, is a wonderful indoor space with a stage at one end making it a favorite place for many activities.



We look forward to welcoming you and your school!
