Summer Camp Update

June 11, 2020

Camp is running this summer! We are excited to welcome back our wonderful campers to connect with nature, make friends, and have fun. This year, in order to accommodate new regulations and ensure the safety of our staff and campers while welcoming as many campers as possible, our groups will be much smaller, sessions will be one week each, and we have had to limit enrollment to one week per camper. In addition, only those entering first grade and above will be able to attend this year, unfortunately. Camp will begin on July 13, and we will run sessions through September 10.

Have questions? Please consult our Frequently Asked Questions page.

At Drumlin Farm Camp in Lincoln and Assabet River Camp in Sudbury, campers ages 4–17 develop an appreciation for nature. Campers gain confidence and comfort in the natural world and understand the interconnectedness among people, land, and wildlife.
