Summer Camp Update

June 4, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we will be running a modified summer camp at Chickatawbut Hill this summer. In the last two weeks, we received recommendations from the CDC and from the American Camping Association (ACA) on running a safe camp. With the state regulations for reopening camp available as of June 1, we are currently examining our camp policies and procedures and modifying them to meet or exceed these recommendations.

We will send out a handbook of our updated policies and procedures that will include the modifications Mass Audubon camps will be taking to adhere to the ACA,CDC, and Massachusetts Department of Public Health guidelines.

Due to the capacity restrictions put in place by the state to limit the spread of COVID-19, all of our sessions are full for 2020 with extensive waiting lists. Please contact the camp director at bluehillscamp@massaudubon.org for more information.


Our unique location atop scenic Chickatawbut Hill invites campers to discover nature through hands-on exploration, creative play, and active learning. Each session features an age-appropriate theme intended to deepen a child’s understanding and awareness of the natural world. Small camp groups and experienced, caring staff create a friendly and safe atmosphere on "the hill."
