Bowdoin College

Outstanding Fields

Bowdoin College’s Pickard Fields cover 35 acres of some of the best groomed field space in New England. Blessed with excellent natural drainage, the fields are supported by in-ground irrigation and are well-tended by a devoted field crew. Bowdoin College has been the host site for many NESCAC, New England Rugby, and Northeast Regional Rugby Tournaments for Division I and II men and women. The USA Women’s Eagles trained on our beautiful pitch during their 3-week Residential Camp prior to World Cup.

Certified Athletic Trainers will be on site for the duration of the camp, in residence halls and available 24/7. Access to training rooms for equipment, supplies, and care is available and included in the cost of camp. Should it be necessary, two hospitals are within 5 and 10 minutes of Bowdoin College.
