Pinewoods Camp is located between two fresh water ponds near Plymouth, MA. Classes and evening dances are held in wood-floored, open-sided pavilions. Housing is in small, screened
cabins and cottages, and meals are in an open-sided dining hall overlooking Long Pond. Campers share modern bathroom and shower facilities. To help keep the cost of camp reasonable, each camper has an assigned daily work job, such as table setting or dance hall sweeping.
We have a fabulous staff of dance teachers and musicians!
