Every summer The Elizabeth Peabody House transports more than 100 children from Greater Boston to its 21-acre lakefront campus 30 miles south of Boston. We provide your child a true and traditional camp experience, enjoying the outdoors, participating in fun-filled activities, and making new friends.
Camp Gannett, as it is known, is situated on the south shore of Lake Massapoag in Sharon. The spring-fed lake, adjoining swamp, open fields and shaded pine forests all offer campers a host of activities, from swimming, fishing and boating, to field trips, nature walks and more. The theme-based curriculum provides campers a chance to explore, engage and enjoy the great outdoors in a way that also safeguards against summer learning loss.
Camp Gannett also hosts a number of field trips throughout the summer, as a way of enriching the lives of all of our campers.
