Give your child the chance to experience the transformative power of art and nature! Our unique camp setting—part wildlife sanctuary, part art studio and maker's space—in Canton inspires creativity, promotes well-being, and enhances connections to nature.

Campers ages 4.5–14 have fun and build lasting friendships while naturalists, teaching artists, and trained counselors lead them in outdoor explorations and creative art projects, including kiln-fired pottery, painting, mixed media, printmaking, and more. We provide a safe, fun-filled camp experience specially designed to nurture a child’s happiness and sense of wonder.

What Others are Saying . . .

"Of all the camps that we have gone to over the years (and there have been many!) the Wild at Art Nature Camp is our favorite. My children look forward to their weeks here every year. Never mind those other camps that sell out in January. To me, this camp is Mass Audubon’s best kept secret." –Camp Parent

"Each year the camp gets better and better. Camp counselors and staff are welcoming, attentive, and form strong bonds with the children. My daughter learns (and has fun learning) at camp. And, we use that knowledge year-round by asking questions about nature and art and things she learned at camp." –Camp Family
