Drumlin Farm Camp

Drumlin campers and counselors giving thumbs up

At Drumlin Farm Camps in Lincoln and Sudbury, campers ages 4–18 develop an appreciation for nature. Campers gain confidence and comfort in the natural world and understand the interconnectedness among people, land, and wildlife.

Our programs encourage campers to explore local habitats while connecting them to the joys and wonders of the natural landscape. Campers engage through crafts, games, songs, cooking, and hands-on activities specific to the site. Each of our three locations offer unique educational opportunities stemming from their differing landscapes.

at Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary, Lincoln

Our largest location is at Drumlin Farm, a 206-acre Mass Audubon sanctuary that is home to a working farm and wildlife refuge. Campers ages 4–18 participate in farm chores, explore a wide variety of natural habitats, and learn about farm to table philosophy. Learn More >

at Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge, Sudbury

At Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge in Sudbury, Massachusetts, campers ages 7–10 get to explore, play, and work on this 2,200-acre parcel of pristine New England habitat through one-week camps.

at Wolbach Farm, Sudbury

Wolbach Farm—a 54-acre property owned and operated by the Sudbury Valley Trustees in Sudbury, MA—offers campers ages 4–6 introductory explorations of nature through one-week sessions. Camp topics include reptiles, mammals, and nature exploration. Learn More >

We design our camp around the pillars of community, interdependence, and stewardship, and hope that each camper ends their day having learned something new. Our goal is to create and facilitate lifelong connections with nature that create responsible stewards of our planet. Learn More >

Our camp staff are a diverse group of naturalists, teachers, and college students who want more than a summer job. They are thoroughly trained and well prepared for the shifting nature of a day at camp. Our counselors exhibit an enthusiasm for outdoor education, a love of the natural world, and a desire to build a strong, cohesive, and inclusive community. Learn More >
