Boston Harbor Scottish Fiddle School is held on beautiful Thompson Island in Boston Harbor. The island is a short ferry ride from downtown Boston, Massachusetts, and is part of the 33-island Boston Harbor Islands National Recreation Area. Our home on the island is the Thompson Island Conference Center, which is owned and operated by Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center. The Conference Center’s facilities include dorms, classrooms, dining hall/kitchen, auditorium and gym. Outward Bound operates youth adventure and enrichment programs on the island, as well as corporate outings and team-building events. In addition to our classes and activities at BHSFS, campers enjoy exploring the island with its beaches, hiking trails and spectacular views of the harbor and the Boston skyline.
