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.

The best of both worlds! Spread along the banks of a 230-acre Ponkapoag Pond in the 8,500-acre DCR Blue Hills Reservation. The camp offers a wilderness experience just 15 minutes from Boston. Here you’ll enjoy a rustic environment, be able to help preserve this critical area, and have the chance to volunteer to keep the Ponkapoag spirit alive!
