Wildwood has welcomed campers to explore nature at four camp locations throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire since 1950. Summer 2020 marks our 70th anniversary as well as 20 years since we purchased our permanent camp location in Rindge, New Hampshire.

To celebrate, we are hosting an alumni reunion weekend from August 22–23, 2020! Folks can choose to sleepover in a cabin or platform tent, just like back in the day, or come for a single day of fun activities and reminiscing on Sunday. Airport shuttles from Manchester or Boston will be available. 

We can’t wait to see you and hear your camp stories!

    I wish that I could come to the reunion, but distance, and money won’t allow it. I was a camper at Wildwood in ’51 and ’52 and a counselor in ’59 when Wildwood was still at Cooks Canyon. I knew Chief well. The ’50s in MAS were special and can never be repeated. I can still, after all these years sing the (Cooks Canyon) Wildwood Song, picture Fran Sherburne and Ivy L. when they came to teach. We had buffalo roasts near the canyon and ate nine-grain cereal for breakfast in the dining hall on the hill. Even had a swimming pool. Slept in tents and woke up cold in the morning.
    Again, my regrets for not being there, next year
