COVID-19 Safety

The health and welfare of our campers and staff remains our highest priority. We feel confident that the success of Mass Audubon Camps in designing and offering a safe summer of camping in 2020 will guide us into another great summer in 2021. More details >

Our unique location atop scenic Chickatawbut Hill invites campers ages 5–13 to discover nature through hands-on exploration, creative play, and active learning. Each session features age-appropriate activities 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."
