WelcomeRates & DatesAbout CampDay Camp Policies

At North River Nature Camp in Marshfield, children ages 4.5–14 are encouraged to explore their curiosity about the natural world. Campers have fun, make friends, and experience nature through outdoor play and discovery at our 225-acre wildlife sanctuary.

Daily activities include trail explorations, habitat investigations, hands-on experiments, wildlife observation, creative games and crafts, and more. Small group sizes ensure that our counselors can develop a relationship with each child, creating a caring, supportive environment. Each day, a new adventure awaits!

How to Register

Registration opened on Thursday, February 2, 2023. Families may register online or by calling 781-837-9400.

Sliding Scale Update 

Due to overwhelming need for financial assistance, we have closed registration for Tiers 1-4. Full-price registration at Tier 5 will remain open until all available spaces are filled. As we continue to secure funding across the state, we will open more spaces at lower tiers where possible. If you are unable to pay the full tuition for camp, we encourage you to add your name to our waitlist.

Our statewide goal is to have a healthy balance of campers from all income tiers attend Mass Audubon camps in order to increase equitable access to camp for as many families as possible while still securing enough revenue to continue providing the excellent camp experience our communities have come to expect from Mass Audubon Camps.
