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 >

At Broad Meadow Brook Nature Day Camp in Worcester, campers ages 4.5–16 can tap into their natural curiosity by investigating different habitats, ecosystems, and wildlife species at our 430-acre sanctuary. Each day is spent outside exploring their surroundings and getting dirty while engaging in socially-distanced play, noncompetitive games, songs, and stories.

NEW! Sliding Scale Pricing

We are making it a priority for all families to be able to send their children to camp in a fair and equitable manner. A sliding scale model levels the playing field to include all families in an easy and dependable process. It creates a diverse camp community where no family is turned away because of their ability to pay. No matter where you fall on this sliding scale, please reach out to us if you have unique circumstances. Learn more >
