Hillside Camp

Outdoor exploration paired with unique farm and wildlife activities enrich the Hillside program. Over 160 acres of natural beauty include a sandy canoe launch along the Great Swamp and the Green Chimneys Farm & Wildlife Center, where campers make furry and feathered friends with 300+ animals. An Olympic-sized indoor pool means swimming in almost any weather.
