Mass Audubon Camps 2021 banner

May 21, 2021

Mass Audubon's camps are open for summer 2021 registration! Due to state-mandated COVID-19 restrictions, all of our camps are currently running at a limited capacity. New guidance on regulations has allowed some camps to add more spaces for camp registrations. Please check with your local day camp for more information.

An Update About Masks

With the numbers of vaccinated Americans growing every day and the recent updates from the CDC and Governor Baker, many folks are eager to know what the safety procedures of Mass Audubon Camps will be this summer.

While many of our staff, parents and caregivers, and even some older campers may already be vaccinated, most of our camp community members are children who are not yet eligible to be vaccinated.

Camp is, by its very nature, a deeply interconnected community. We have a responsibility to take into consideration the many different experiences and needs of the children and families that we support during the camp season; therefore, we must do everything we can to protect the safety and wellbeing of every community member, especially those who are most vulnerable.

We ask you to please recognize that our priority is to be mindful and inclusive of the needs of all of our campers. Here are some important policies that will be in place this summer:

  • Masks are required for all campers and staff
  • Masks will always be worn indoors and campers will maintain three feet of distance as much as is possible while indoors
  • Masks will be worn outside with ample opportunities for “mask breaks” during games and activities that permit adequate distancing. Masks will be optional when campers are engaged in activities where appropriate distance can be maintained.
  • We will offer refunds to families who are not able to comply with Mass Audubon Camp policies

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your local camp's director and read more about our COVID-19 camp safety plan.

At Mass Audubon day camps, kids have fun, connect with nature, and make friends while developing their interests in the outdoors.

Hands-on activities, outdoor exploration, and non-competitive games keep campers active and help build confidence in nature. Our caring and energetic counselors are passionate about engaging kids and creating an environment where each child matters.  

Attention, parents! You can pay camp fees online.

The Camp Experience

My children learned a tremendous amount about the environment and animals. They were so excited to come to camp because of the engaging activities and the warmth of your staff members. Your camp exceeded all of my expectations and I would recommend to any family!” – Moose Hill Camp Parent
