It is held behind Bates Elementary School on Kelly Field, where representa- tives from The Wellesley Recreation Department, Wellesley Natural Resource Center, and the Boy Scouts will lead campers on nature walks and teach them about knot tying, fire building, and other out- door activities. Tents are available if needed. This is perfect for first- timers or veteran campers!
