WHERE: The Trustees offers two unique summer camp options at its signature properties in Hingham. Weir River Farm is a 75-acre working farm with fields and pastures surrounded by oak and red cedar woodlands and edged by the Weir River. World’s End is a 400-acre peninsula with varied coastal, woodland, and salt marsh habitats complemented by rolling hills and panoramic water views. Our camps are inspired by these exceptional properties and build on The Trustees’ expertise in nature conservation, historic landscapes, regenerative agriculture, and coastal management.

WHAT: At each location campers enjoy outdoor, place-based activities that align with our environmental education mission. Campers will go home each afternoon with stories about their new camp friends and adventures!

Weir River Farm CampCampers spend time in the barnyard throughout each week, interacting with and learning to care for goats, sheep, chickens, and other farm friends. They develop gardening skills and fresh food appreciation in the Children’s Garden. They explore the surrounding woodland habitats, learning about local wildlife along the way. Each week also includes creative play, organized games, and enriching arts and crafts projects designed to instill the importance of agriculture and the environment.

World’s End CampCampers spend each day exploring the rocky shores, beaches, fields, and woodlands of this unique peninsula habitat. Campers discover the plants, animals, sea life, and minerals that call this place home – and learn about the delicate balance that supports all living things. The Wakeman O’Donnell Center acts as our home base, providing shelter and opportunities for science activities. Creative projects, active games, friendship building, and fun are also part of every camp day.

WHO: South Shore Camps are designed for campers who love the outdoors, caring for farm animals, getting their hands dirty, identifying sea creatures along the coast, connecting to the land, being independent learners, using their imagination, and tapping into their resilience no matter the weather. A team of talented, compassionate, and energetic educators support campers in their quest to connect to the natural world and find their place within it.

The daily rhythm of camp is consistent week to week. We have noticed that after 4 weeks, some campers are looking for new adventures. Please consider this when registering.

If you have any inquiries about whether your camper will thrive at our camps, please contact the camp office.
