Payment

Deposit

A nonrefundable deposit is required to register for camp as follows:

  • 1-Week Sessions: $50 per camper (per session)
  • 2-Week Sessions: $100 per camper (per session)

The deposit will be applied to your camp tuition and cannot be transferred to another camper, family, or camp location. If you are registering after May 15, payment in full is required (unless a payment plan has been established with the Camp Director).

Refund Policy

A full refund, minus the nonrefundable deposit, is provided to camp families who cancel in writing on or before May 15. After May 15 no refund is available. Deposits are not transferable, and refunds are not given for participant dismissal, failure to attend, absence or sick days. If we must cancel a session, you will receive a full refund.

Membership

Mass Audubon membership at the Family level or above is required to register for camp. To qualify, your membership must be current through your camper’s last session, and you must be the parent, grandparent, or legal guardian of the camper being enrolled. Membership can be purchased or renewed at the time of registration. Learn more about membership >

Financial Aid

Financial assistance is available based on demonstrated economic need and available funds, and is generally limited to one session per child; however, all applications are considered. We encourage applications be turned in as soon as you are considering camp. Download an application >

Payment Plans

Payment plan options are available. Please contact the Camp Director for more information.


Important Deadlines

All camp health forms and waivers, as well as the balance of your camp tuition, are due by May 15. If registering after May 15, payment in full is required and a specific camp form deadline will be set for you. A camper cannot attend camp and his/her spot is not guaranteed until all forms, waivers, and payments are completed (or a payment plan has been established). A fee of $25 per camper will be charged for incomplete or late forms and waivers.


Additional Information

Camper Requirements

Campers are expected to meaningfully participate in age-appropriate activities, including outdoor exploration and nature study. To ensure a successful camp experience, please discuss any pertinent information regarding your child’s special needs with the Camp Director. We can accommodate on a case-by-case basis in order to establish the best strategy for a great summer camp experience. All campers must follow stated behavior expectations and safety rules.

The Camp Director reserves the right to dismiss a camper when, in his/her judgment, the camper’s behavior interferes with the rights of others or the smooth functioning of the group or activity, or violates the camp’s behavior policy. In such cases no refunds will be provided. If you have any questions regarding your child’s ability to participate in our camp program, please contact the Camp Director.

Camp License 

Our camp complies with the regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (105 CMR 430) and is licensed by the Natick Board of Health.

ACA Accreditation 

We are proud to be accredited by the American Camp Association. Developed exclusively for the camp industry, this nationally recognized program focuses on program quality, and health and safety, management, and camp operations.

Session Transfers 

Sessions transfer requests will be honored if there is space available and if a request is made at least two weeks prior to the session start date, after which time transfers are not permitted.

Carpool Requests

If you would like to be added to the carpool list, please check the appropriate box on your registration form and your information will be shared with other interested families. Carpool lists will be distributed in June.

Campouts

Explorers and Voyagers attending a two-week session will have a campout at the end of their second week. Camp will end Friday at 9:00 am for Explorers, and Friday at various times for Voyagers, depending on campout location, but usually around noon.

Your camp registration confirmation will include details and a form to be completed in advance of the campout. Staff will communicate about meals, activities, and supplies via a letter during the first week of your camper’s session. We encourage camp families to contribute to this shared community experience by lending tents when possible.
