Camp Lovewell: Nashua, N.H.

Run by environmentally focused educational company The Nature of Things, Camp Lovewell boasts the first LEED Platinum certified school building in New Hampshire complete with solar voltaic electricity and geothermal heating. The day camp for 4- to 14-year-olds takes advantage of 350 acres of nearby conservation land for exploration. Activities range from kayaking and drama to those that build an appreciation for nature including milk production, gardening and farm animal care.
