Encourage your child’s inquisitive nature and prepare him or her for future experiences in science and conservation. Campers learn to approach questions using science while also having fun, gaining self-confidence, growing imaginations and making lasting camp friends.

A typical day may include outdoor exploration, crafts, games, learning about animals and conducting science experiments. Other experiences may include special guests and off-site trips to the local pool.

Limited scholarships are available thanks to funding by Wild Birds Unlimited and an anonymous donor. See additional scholarship information below. (UPDATE 6/14/18: All scholarships have been awarded.)

Camp Hours

Camp activities are from 9am-4pm daily. Unless extended care is purchased or alternate arrangements are made in advance, campers should be dropped off 8:45am-9:15am and picked up 3:45pm-4:15pm. If purchased, extended care begins at 6:30am and ends at 6:30pm. 

Camp will be closed Monday, May 28 and Wednesday, July 4. Rates are discounted these weeks.

Scholarships

A total of five scholarships are offered throughout the summer, so we encourage applying as soon as possible. Scholarships are limited to one per child and are not available for use during the first two weeks of camp. 

Scholarships cover full tuition and registration fees for one week of camp. Scholarship recipients also receive a souvenir bag, which includes a drawstring backpack, water bottle and pencil. Scholarship recipients may enroll in additional weeks of camp without paying the registration fee. 

In order to obtain a scholarship, download the application and read thoroughly. Send the complete application to dcac@audubon.org at least seven days prior to the desired camp week. If the scholarship is approved, a unique coupon code will be provided for use on the registration portal.  Parents/guardians are required to complete the registration through the portal within two days of notification of the award. Scholarship recipients are subject to the same camp rules and requirements of all other camp participants.
