Registration for Wild at Art Nature Camp in Canton opens on Wednesday, January 18 and we’re looking forward to sunshine, summertime, and days filled with wonder and discovery in the great outdoors.

To ensure a smooth registration process, please log in to your registration account ahead of time to check that your account and Mass Audubon membership are active. Please note: Your membership must be active through the end of your child’s camp session in order to qualify for the member rate. If you register for camp at the member rate and your membership is due to lapse before the start of camp, you will be billed for your membership renewal. 

About Camp

Our unique camp setting—part wildlife sanctuary, part art museum and studio—inspires creativity, promotes well-being, and enhances connections to nature. Campers ages 4.5–14 have fun and build lasting friendships while naturalists, teaching artists, and trained counselors lead them in outdoor explorations and creative art projects, including kiln-fired pottery, painting, mixed media, printmaking, and more.   

NEW for 2023: Sliding Scale Pricing! In order to increase equitable access to nature camp for even more families, all Mass Audubon day camps now utilize a sliding scale pricing model.  

Our Programs 

  • One-week Nature and Art Camp for ages 4.5–13, with weekly themes like Amazing Amphibians, Remarkable Reptiles, and Owl Ecology 
  • Two-week specialty sessions for ages 9–13, including Nature-Inspired Pottery and Nature’s Canvas: Painting, Journaling, and Field Biology 
  • Weekly sessions of Taking Flight: Unleash Your Creativity at The Nest for ages 11–14 to use the tools of our makerspace to design, build, and create art inspired by nature 
  • Counselors-in-Training for ages 14–15, to gain leadership experience working with children in an outdoor setting

“After the very first day of camp, our daughter excitedly shared all of the activities she had done and happily let us know about the new friends she had made.  We love that this camp nurtures creativity, curiosity, and appreciation for our natural environment.”
