Counselors-In-Training (CIT) Registration

Teens ages 14–16 who are interested in our CIT program must submit an application and pay a fee ($250 for members or $315 for nonmembers). The fee covers a mandatory training plus a minimum two-week commitment between June 20–August 19. CIT positions are limited, so please apply early! Request an application >

Registration Confirmation

A confirmation email containing important documents and information will be sent once your camper’s registration has been processed.


Payment


Deposit

A nonrefundable deposit is required to register for camp as follows:

  • 1-Week Sessions: $75/camper/session
  • 2-Week Sessions: $150/camper/session

The deposit will be applied to your camp tuition and cannot be transferred to another camper, family, or camp location. If registering after May 2, payment in full is required, unless a payment plan has been established with the Camp Director.

Refund Policy

A full refund, minus the nonrefundable deposit, is provided to camp families who cancel in writing on or before May 2. After May 2 no refund is available. Deposits are not transferable, and refunds are not given for participant dismissal, failure to attend, absence or sick days. If we must cancel a session, you will receive a full refund.

Membership Discount

Mass Audubon members at the Family level or above receive a discounted rate. To qualify, your membership must be current through your camper’s last session, and you must be the parent, grandparent, or legal guardian of the camper being enrolled. Membership can be purchased or renewed at the time of registration. Learn more about membership >

Financial Aid

We believe connection with the natural world should be available to all. If finances are getting in the way of a summer at Wild at Art Nature Camp, financial assistance is available based on demonstrated financial need and available funds. Scholarships are limited to one session per child; however, all applications are considered and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Download a scholarship application >

Payment Plans

Payment plan options are available. Please contact the Camp Director for more information.


Important Deadlines


All camp health forms and waivers, as well as the balance of your camp tuition, are due by May 2. If registering after May 2, payment in full is required and a specific camp form will be set for you. A camper cannot attend camp and their spot is not guaranteed until all forms, waivers, and payments are completed (or a payment plan has been established). A fee of $20 per camper will be charged for incomplete or late forms and waivers.


Additional Information


Camper Requirements

Campers are expected to be able to follow all COVID-19 safety protocols, to be determined by the start of camp based on the latest guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Visit massaudubon.org/camps for the latest information about COVID-19 safety at Mass Audubon Camps.

All campers must follow stated behavior expectations and safety rules. To ensure a successful camp experience, please discuss any pertinent information regarding your child’s needs with the Camp Director. We strive to make camp a great experience for all, and we can accommodate on a case-by-case basis. The Camp Director reserves the right to dismiss a camper when, in their judgment, the camper’s behavior interferes with the rights of others or violates the camp’s safety and behavior policies. In such cases, no refunds will be provided.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s ability to participate in our camp program, please contact the Camp Director.
