Located in a rural setting near Island Pond, NorthWoods sits on a ridge astride an international border region that is part of both the Connecticut River and Memphremagog watersheds.
Northeast to the Canadian border stretches one of the last wilderness tracts in New England providing an ideal setting for natural resource education and cross-country exploration as well as offering opportunities to demonstrate sustainable management practices and monitor long-term effects of climate change and other variables on natural communities.
Facilities include a large conference building with kitchen, dining and meeting areas, a 16-bed Bunkhouse for overnight groups, a log cabin classroom and woodworking shop, high and low ropes courses and initiative events, wilderness campsites, 30km of hiking and cross-country ski trails and access to nearly 2,000 acres of woods, fields, ponds and streams.
Most facilities are available for private events whenever space permits. Ropes course and initiative events require staff supervision.
