Recreation

If you have a passion for the outdoors, you’ll love our location.

Nestled in the Pioneer Valley, NMH is home to some of the most scenic views in New England. Our campus borders the Connecticut River, and is close to fishing areas, hiking trails, and ski areas.

Besides our roster of traditional sports, the Outdoor Program offers activities such as mountain biking, rock-climbing, ice skating, and canoeing. There’s also a physical education program offering choices from recreational snowboarding to yoga.

At NMH, you might sail a boat on nearby lakes or get an adrenalin rush from whitewater canoeing. You can sample new activities (paddle-boarding, anyone?), compete informally in triathlons, or just stay active for the fun of it.

If you are eager to try an outdoor activity that we don’t offer, you may be able to pursue it through independent study.
