SCHOOL FACTS

  • Showers: There are showers on site – private for girls, communal for boys. There are separate and private showers for adults.
  • Program Area: This coming summer’s program will be in the brand new state of the art auditorium which has AC!
  • Sleeping Arrangements: This school has dorms but the campers will not be sleeping in them as they are not air conditioned. The sleeping area will be in the academic buildings which do have a/c so the teens and chaperons will need air mattresses, similar to all of our other camps.
  • Additional Information: The Manchester, NH Airport is the closer (and usually cheaper) airport to fly into. Manchester is 25 min away – Boston (Logan) is 45 – 60 min away.

WORKSITE INFO

In Boston we work mainly in Merrimack Valley (Lowell and Lawrence). Lawrence is the 2nd poorest city in Massachusetts. We also do a lot of work for elderly through elder care services in the local cities.
We also work with a camp for “exceptional children” – children with special needs, homeless shelters for women and children, an orphanage, and a home for teenage mothers and their children.

Worksites also include social service centers, such as food banks, homeless shelters, and soup kitchens.
