Westford Friends of East Boston Camps

About East Boston Camps


Established over seventy years ago and currently owned by the town of Westford, East Boston Camps includes 286 acres of pristine conservation land in the heart of the town. The property includes a pond, brooks, miles of walking trails and thirty camp buildings.

Its purpose is to provide open space and facilities for recreation, camping, environmental and educational programs.

Recent History

East Boston Camps was acquired by the Town of Westford on March 31, 2005 after a unanimous vote at a February 7, 2005, Special Town Meeting. The East Boston Camps Master Plan calls for the property to be open and accessible to all; for the protection of the property's forest, wildlife, and water quality; and for the preservation of the feeling of serenity, peacefulness, and quiet of this open space.

The Westford Conservation Commission has been entrusted with the care and custody of the East Boston Camps property, and manages the use of the site.

Available for Rent

To help offset the costs of maintaining the East Boston Camps property, the camp areas are available for use after obtaining the required permit from the Conservation Commission. The Commission has developed a set of policies and rates governing the use of the camp areas.
