Our Philosophy

At Wachusett Meadow Nature Camp, we believe it’s important to provide children with hands-on experiences that help them to feel comfortable in nature. Through various activities and explorations, campers come to understand their place in the "web of life" while having fun and making friends. We also provide opportunities for structured free play, during which campers gain appreciation for our inter-connectedness with nature and each other.

Our Credentials

Our staff have decades of experience in connecting children to nature. We are proud of our reputation of running a safe, organized educational program where each child matters.

Camp License

Our camp complies with the regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (105 CMR 430) and is licensed by the Princeton Board of Health.

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

At Mass Audubon Camps, we strive to create a safe, inclusive, and caring camp environment where each person is respected and supported in their learning and growth. We believe that diversity—both in nature and in our human communities—is essential to strength, resilience, and innovation, and we are committed to recognizing the unique contributions of each community member.
