Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal:
Summer Camps & Programs in Western MA

Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News!  Each month, community-based education specialist and Hilltown Families’ Founder, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal hosts to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).

This monthly segment continued on Thursday, March 5, 2020 with Sienna and Patrick discussing how summer camps and programs can support both interests and values, as well as strengthening a sense of place.
