"I wanted to send them to Camp Massasoit because I’ve heard nothing but wonderful things from our friends. So, we were just waiting until they were old enough to send. They just love to be outdoors." Suzanne Gile, parent
Camper and counselor canoeing on Lake Masssasoit
"We explored a number of different camps and what we found was this one had counselors who were a little older, more qualified. They had college majors that had to do with camping or had to do with recreation. What we found was that the whole experience was great. It’s probably one of the best experiences we’ve given him so far." Mart Manning, parent
Campers and counselors dancing
"I love pretty much everything. The reason I say that is I like to kayak. I like archery. I like climbing. I was scared of heights but now I’m not. I never thought I would shoot that well and now I’m hitting bull’s eyes. I never thought I would kayak and now I’ll be at the bridge first. I wasn’t that good in swimming and now I’m pretty good. I hated heights and couldn’t even get off the ropes the first year." Dan Manning, camper
Spring Explorers using the ropes course
"The ropes course is really fun but sometimes, when you get up high, it’s a little scary. The counselors just tell you ‘keep going’ and they tell you how to get up." Nolan Stratton, camper
