Audubon Summer Day Camp 2020
Registration Opens February 1, 2020
Our camp days are filled with a variety of activities—including hiking, brook-walks, river exploration, crafts, nature-themed games, live animal interactions, and birding.
Our staff is selected for their experience and skills working with youth in environmental education and for their interest in local ecology and natural history. All staff must pass background checks and are required to hold current CPR and First Aid certifications, making camp a safe place to learn about and experience nature. Our staff have helping hands each week from our Leaders in Training, experienced campers gaining skills in environmental education leadership.
Camp Age Groups: Camp groups are arranged by grade. Naturalists are campers entering grades 1 - 4 in Fall 2020 and EcoDiscoverers are campers entering grades 5 - 8.
