Explore the great outdoors at the Boston Leadership Institute! 

This course takes full advantage of our location outside of Boston. Our gorgeous Olin College campus is situated just outside Boston adjacent to a variety of elements like forests, fields, rivers and more.  Students will get their hands dirty exploring the various New England habitats, marshlands, forests, geology and more. 

Students will also have the opportunity to learn about local animal and plant life native to beautiful New England. Students engage in proprietary activities. This is the perfect option for students who have outgrown the typical summer camp but don’t want to spend the summer in a lab.
