With streams, marshes and two kettle ponds, our Nature's Classroom site on 300 beautiful acres in Groton, Massachusetts is a great location for aquatic investigations and a terrific place for students to experience the outdoors together.


On the shore of Lost Lake, signs of beaver activity are everywhere, complete with beaver dams and chewed up tree stumps.









The kettle ponds and the large boulders dropped by the glaciers help give students a sense of the great changes that happened here fifteen thousand years ago as the climate was changing.



  Housing arrangements, for up to 182 students, are flexible. One building, Memorial, can house about 52 students while smaller cabins can accommodate 10 students each, with a separate area for a chaperone. Many have been recently renovated. Some of the cabins even have living rooms. We have separate cabins for visiting adults if they choose (they are set up as houses, not just rooms!.)















We have a huge indoor gym here in Groton, and our Dining Hall includes extra indoor space for classes and large group activities.

Quality food is provided by the Grotonwood Conference Center.
