In addition to directing Wachusett Meadow Nature Camp, Elizabeth Broughton is part of Mass Audubon’s education team year-round. She coordinates and teaches homeschool programs for Mass Audubon Central sanctuaries, school and scout groups, and public programs for families. She also serves as Wachusett Meadow’s resident Caretaker and enjoys her scenic walking commute to work.

Our Camp Staff


Camp staff are carefully selected for their enthusiasm, caring attitude toward children, and ability to interact with youth in an outdoor setting. All staff undergo background checks, are certified in CPR and first aid, and receive training in health and safety procedures, child development, natural history, and environmental education best practices.

Mass Audubon requires that all staff, regardless of their work location, disclose their vaccination status. Proof of vaccination status is required immediately upon hire.
