The University of Rhode Island's W. Alton Jones campus encompasses 2,300 acres of forests, fields, and farmland. Only a half-hour drive south on I-95 from Providence, this bucolic setting is one of the hidden gems of Rhode Island.
The Whispering Pines Conference Center focuses on fully customizable conferences and weddings. With gourmet food, rustic yet upscale accommodations, and a homey, familial atmosphere, you will get an environment that is exclusively designed for your group.
The Environmental Education Center hosts up to 1,900 campers in the summer and 70 groups during the school year. With trained staff as role models, and carefully crafted programs, it is the perfect setting for outdoor exploration, learning and fun. Whether you are a teacher hoping to supplement your science or social studies curriculum, or a parent looking for a reliable, positive, outdoor experience for your fledgling camper, the W. Alton Jones Campus is the perfect setting.
