NEOC (New England Outdoor Camp)

Set in Nature. Rooted in Wonder. Bursting with Fun!

Born out of the enjoyment and safety our nation experienced by being outside during the pandemic, NEOC — pronounced nē-äk — NEOC connects campers to nature with programming that encourages their personal interests. It is a throw-back to vintage summer camps where children explored and played outside at an easy pace and without any technology at all.

NEOC’s campus is the Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley, an expansive property that includes river-access, trails, forested areas, gardens, and the opportunity for campfires. Camp activities include canoeing, archery, hiking, orienteering, outdoor survival skills, gardening, arts and crafts, music, cooking, games, sports, and wellness. As the camp welcomes campers ages 3 - 15, all of these activities are offered as age appropriate. A camp culture of inclusion and appreciation allows for friendships to blossom and for campers to mentor one another. As campers grow at NEOC, they are encouraged to wonder about, investigate, and build their understanding of nature.
