Directions

Address: 190 W. Long Pond Road (Resident side), 360 Mast Road (Day side), Plymouth MA

There are separate directions for day and resident camp, and the two camp properties are not connected.

Day Camp: Please do NOT use GPS or Mapquest to get to camp, as those directions may not work well, and they will likely get you lost on some very remote roads. Instead, take Route 3 to exit 3. Follow the signs towards Clarke Road at the end of the ramp. At the stop sign ¼-mile up, turn right onto Long Pond Road. Follow Long Pond Road past South High School (on the right). About .4 of a mile past the high school, turn left on Mast Road. Mast Road is a dirt road. The Camp entrance is 1.7 miles down Mast Road on the left, and it is clearly marked.

Resident Camp: Take Route 3 to Exit 3. At the end of the ramp follow the arrow towards Clark Road. At the stop sign, ¼ mile up the road, turn left then immediately right (almost a diagonal) to stay on Clark Road. At the end of the road, ½-mile up, turn left. Go around the bend and the road turns to dirt. Camp is ¼-mile ahead on the right. GPS cannot be used to get to camp.
