VISION STATEMENT:

AMC’s Ponkapoag Camp, a purposefully rustic campground located in Greater Boston, will foster a deep connection to nature for the region’s diverse population.

MISSION STATEMENT:

Our mission at the AMC Ponkapoag Camp is to create:

  • Direct experiences with nature on a personal level
  • An inclusive community through affordability, outreach and accessibility
  • Environmental stewardship and advocacy for nature generally and the Blue Hills Reservation in particular
  • Connection to and promotion of the values of the AMC

We aim to provide a transformational experience that encourages campers to become volunteers and advocates for themselves, their community, and the natural world.
