COVID-19 Safety

The health and welfare of our campers and staff remains our highest priority. We feel confident that the success of Mass Audubon Camps in designing and offering a safe summer of camping in 2020 will guide us into another great summer in 2021. More details >

Ipswich River Nature Day Camp in Topsfield gives campers ages 5–11 a unique opportunity to learn about nature, meet new friends, and have fun outside. Our knowledgeable staff encourages an educational, non-competitive camp environment for memories that will last a lifetime. 

Sadly, we are unable to run our Marblehead or Essex locations this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
