Working to preserve Westford's natural treasure & continue the camping tradition at East Boston Camps
Our MissionThe mission of the Westford Friends of East Boston Camps is to support the conservation, preservation, maintenance, and improvement of East Boston Camps with the goal of providing camping, environmental and recreational programs for area residents including a mission to include under-privileged and inner city youth.
Our current goal is to build a bathhouse that will benefit everyone who comes to East Boston Camps to enjoy this pristine property and the recreational, educational and environmental programs that have been the foundation of this historic property for seventy-five years.
