Mission Statement

The mission of Hale Reservation is to provide stewardship of its land and resources and to offer educational experiences that foster responsibility, leadership and appreciation for the natural environment.

Description

Hale Reservation is a private, non-profit educational organization that manages over 1,100 acres of woodlands, including four ponds and over twenty miles of trails in Westwood and Dover, Massachusetts. Hale is most widely recognized for its summer day camp programs which annually serve over 3,400 children from 65 communities in the Greater Boston area. The Reservation also offers a family program, outdoor and environmental education experiences for children and adults, and open space for casual recreational use.

The essence of Hale Reservation can be found in Robert Sever Hale' s original desire for the organization he founded in 1918. The current programs and land management practices are the legacy of his wish " to provide education which will develop intelligent, capable and responsible citizens" and to use the land " so long as it is charitable and benevolent in nature." The goal of today' s programs is to develop intelligent leaders and environmentally educated citizens. We believe that the diversity of the natural environment must be reflected back in the diversity of the people who experience Hale Reservation, and we strive to provide programs and opportunities for people of any race, background, religion or economic status.
