Boston Junior Centres at Curry College
A vibrant city full of life, culture, and entertainment.
First incorporated in 1630, Boston is one of the United States’ oldest cities. You’ll want to follow the three-mile, red-brick Freedom Trail, which leads you along 16 of the city’s historic monuments. While looking at these landmarks, you will learn about significant parts of the founding of the United States. The city of Boston is also America’s premier college town, where you find the prestigious universities, Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Tamwood’s Boston summer camp is located at Curry College. Situated on a 135-acre wooded campus and only 7 miles from the downtown core of Boston, Curry College is a great location not only for its beauty but also for the safety and security that it provides for our summer camp. The campus is right next door to the Blue Hills natural reservation, which offers breathtaking views and many kinds of outdoor recreational activities.
Campers attending the Tamwood Summer Camp will do a variety of structured, cultural, recreational, social, and sightseeing activities each week. These activities, events, and excursions can be grouped into four categories—Day Time (Creative, Sports, Teambuilding, or STEAM), Evening, Excursions, and Optional.

Boston Common & Public Garden
Separated by Charles Street, these two public parks provide ample green space for leisurely afternoon strolls or picnics in the shade. Boston Common is considered the oldest park in the United States with an interesting past. Established in 1837, Public Garden was created as the first public botanical garden in North America. Here you can, dip your toes into the Frog Pond on a hot summer day, grab your ice skates in the winter or begin your walk learning more about Boston’s rich history on the Freedom Trail.
