NEOC, Set in Nature. Rooted in Wonder. Bursting with Fun!
NEOC connects campers, age 3 - 15, to nature with activities that spark their excitement, curiosity, and individuality! Their campus, on the Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, is an expansive property with river-access, trails, forested areas, gardens, and the opportunity for campfires. Their activities include canoeing, archery, hiking, shelter building, gardening, arts & crafts, games, sports, and wellness. As campers range from ages 3 - 15, all activities are carefully tailored to be age appropriate. Choice is a keystone of the NEOC experience and their program champions the development of independence by offering choice activities each afternoon.
One very special and unique aspect of NEOC is the multi-age play and mentoring built into their program, which is well-supported by the inclusive and intimate camp culture. As campers grow at NEOC, they are encouraged to wonder about, investigate, and build their understanding of nature.
The Story School brings stories to life and transforms campers into heroes with their live-action role-play fantasy adventure camps. Located in the beautiful woods on Prindle Pond in Charlton, Massachusetts, campers become heroes in an interactive LARP game that reacts to their choices.
The Story School prides itself on using curiosity-based learning inspiring campers to creatively utilize their academic-led STEM skills to solve challenges and level-up their characters. Campers will explore their world of magic, history, and monsters by day and as the sun sets, enjoy getting to know friends over games, crafts, and dorm activities.
Story School families know their camper will feel safe, expand their STEAM and interpersonal skills, and return a more confident and empowered version of themselves. The Story School is inclusive of all campers and proud to serve a large number of neuro-diverse and LGBTQ+ students.
