Parent Handbooks & Camper Packets

These packets contain important information for parents, ranging from logistics to policies to a camper questionnaire so that our staff can get to know your child better before they arrive on campus.

There are also forms that parents should complete and return before the start of camp.

Payment Information


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

  • One-Week Sessions: $100/camper/session
  • Two-Week Sessions: $200/camper/session

The deposit will be applied to your camp tuition and cannot be transferred to another camper, family or camp location. If 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. 

Mass Audubon Membership Discount

Mass Audubon members at the Family level or above receive a discounted rate. 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. If you have questions regarding your member status, please call 781-259-2223. Learn more about membership >

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. Applications are due by March 1. Download an application >

Payment Plans

Payment plan options are available. Please contact the Camp Office 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.

Under Massachusetts state law, all campers must have a health form on file at least 24 hours before attending camp. This includes an immunization record signed by a physician. Health forms will be completed via CampDoc, an online health care management system. You will receive an email from CampDoc to fill out your camper’s health information. For any camper health questions or concerns please contact our Health Care Staff.

Additional Information

Camper Requirements

Due to the outdoor and exploratory nature of our camp program, campers must be able to move about on uneven terrain. Campers are expected to meaningfully participate in age-appropriate activities, including nature study. If your camper has special conditions, needs, or limitations, you must speak with the Camp Director annually prior to registering to determine whether your camper can be accommodated at camp. Non-disclosure may result in dismissal without refund.

All campers must follow stated behavior expectations and safety rules. The camp director reserves the right to dismiss a camper when, in his/her judgement, 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.

Buddy Requests

One buddy request per camper will be honored when possible. Both campers must be the same age and both must request each other. All buddy requests must be made in writing at least one week prior to the first day of camp. Please indicate on your registration form if you would like your camper to be placed with a friend of the same age. We are unable to accommodate buddy requests on the first day of camp.

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. Online registrations must call the camp office to be added to the list. Carpool lists will be distributed in May.

Adventurers Trip Information

Trip information, packing lists, and associated forms will be sent out to parents of Adventurers after registration. Please contact the Camp Office with any questions.


Included in your camp fee is an organic and environmentally friendly camp shirt. Please be sure to order the correct size now. Our shirts tend to run small; when in doubt order a larger size your child can grow into.

Camp Policy Requests

You may request copies of our background check, health care, discipline, bullying, and grievance policies at any time. Request a copy of our policies >
