Based on federal, state and CDC guidance, the University has suspended all non-academic summer programs for 2021, including conferences, events, concerts and camps. Therefore, FitRec will not be able to offer Camp Terrier in the summer of 2021. See our full COVID-19 response and FAQs here.

What better way to enjoy summer than exploring the great outdoors? Camp Terrier Outdoor Adventures is an opportunity for older campers to be active in nature and to learn new skills. At the start of each week-long session, campers will get to know each other with team-building, games and rock climbing on our indoor climbing wall. During the rest of the session, campers will take daily field trips to outdoor areas around Boston. Field trip activities will include, but are not limited to, hiking, paddling, swimming, outdoor rock climbing and learning outdoor skills. All participants will be required to pass a swim test.
