No matter what your age, there is a place for you at Springfield College.

Join us at Camp Massasoit!

Striving to maintain a balance between skill development and sheer enjoyment, campers learn about the four areas of respect. The theme of respect is discussed every morning in opening ceremonies and is practiced throughout the camp day by our staff. At Camp Massasoit, we embrace the mission of Springfield College through our focus on education and development of the whole person.
