Welcome to Broad Meadow Brook Nature Camp

Main PageSession DatesSchedulePhilosophy & CredentialsCamp StaffRegistration Information

At Broad Meadow Brook Nature Camp in Worcester, youth can tap into their natural curiosity. Campers ages 4.5–16 are encouraged to be themselves as they investigate different habitats, ecosystems, and wildlife species at our 430-acre sanctuary.

Most of our days are spent outside exploring our surroundings and getting dirty while engaging in noncompetitive games, songs, and stories. While no two weeks will be the same, some of our favorite camper activities will take place every week.

Sliding Scale Pricing

Mass Audubon is committed to ensuring that every family that wants their child to experience summer camp should have the opportunity to do so. A sliding scale model helps us work toward that goal through an easy and dependable process for families. Learn more >

What Others are Saying . . .


"Your camp has such a warm, fun feeling to it. Very welcoming. This starts with the tone and peaceful yet fun demeanor Lisa (the camp director) sets. The counselors are so terrific. They love kids and play with enthusiasm. The kids love it!" –Camp Family

"We were thoroughly impressed. Our children had a blast exploring nature through both the experiential and didactic activities. The variety, quality, and age-appropriateness of activities was perfect and kept our antsy little ones interested and wanting more after each day." –Camp Parent
