How to Register


Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Application

Teens ages 14–17 (entering grades 9–12) who are interested in joining our CIT program must fill out an online application by March 1, 2022. We will then notify CITs and families of the sessions each CIT will be placed in. PLEASE NOTE: All CITs are required to attend a training from June 21-22 or June 23-24. Submit a CIT application >

Registration Confirmation

A confirmation letter or email with links to important documents and information will be sent once your camper’s registration has been processed.


Family Handbooks & Camper Packets


These packets contain important information for families, 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.

2022 Camper Info Packet will be posted in spring


Sliding Scale Pricing


Under the sliding scale model, every family will register for camp at a tuition rate based on their annual gross income. At registration, you will have the opportunity to select the pricing that best fits your family’s gross income bracket. You will be asked to upload income verification documentation at a later time if you selected Tiers 1–4. Registrants at Tier 5 are not required to provide income verification. A deposit is due at the time of registration; the final balance and all paperwork are due by May 2, 2022. If cost is still a barrier under the tiered structure, financial assistance (in the form of scholarships) and payment plans are also available.

Payment Information


Deposit

A nonrefundable deposit is required to register for camp. The deposit will be applied to your camp tuition and cannot be transferred to another camper, family, or camp location. The deposit is $100 for all full-day 1- and 2-week camps, and $50 for half-day and 3-day camps and CITs. If registering after May 2, 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 2. After May 2 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 Aid

We believe connection with the natural world should be available to all. If finances are getting in the way of a summer at Drumlin Farm Camp, financial assistance is available based on demonstrated financial need and available funds. Scholarships are limited to one session per child; however, all applications are considered and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Payment plan options are also available. Please visit massaudubon.org/campforms to download a scholarship application. Download an application >


Important Deadlines


All camp health forms and waivers as well as the balance of your camp tuition are due by May 2. If registering after May 2, payment in full is required and a specific camp form deadline will be set for you. A camper cannot attend camp and their 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

Campers are expected to be able to follow all COVID-19 safety protocols, to be determined by the start of camp based on the latest guidelines from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Visit massaudubon.org/camps for the latest information about COVID-19 safety at Mass Audubon Camps.

All campers must follow stated behavior expectations and safety rules. To ensure a successful camp experience, please discuss any pertinent information regarding your child’s needs with the Camp Director. We strive to make camp a great experience for all, and we can accommodate on a case-by-case basis. The Camp Director reserves the right to dismiss a camper when, in their judgment, the camper’s behavior interferes with the rights of others or violates the camp’s safety and behavior policies. 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.

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.

T-Shirts

Included in your camp fee is a fun camp shirt. Please be sure to order the correct size when you register.

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 >
