Site Highlights

Our 720 acres of forest, pond, meadow, river, and bog communities are a living laboratory in which students and teachers discover wonders of ecology and geology that cannot be found inside the classroom.

This facility offers unique experiences including a high ropes challenge course, a canoe odyssey, snow shoeing and cross country skiing, and a GPS challenge.

In addition to hiking our beautiful property, schools have the option to take a memorable day trip to the nearby Mt Monadnock, the second most climbed mountain in the world.

Housing and Facilities

Students are housed in one of three large cabins Berthune, Frost, or the Cather cabin which is across the road situated on Half Moon Pond.  Schools also have the option to use the smaller cabins: Carver, Carson, Emerson, Thoreau, Twain, and Leopold.
