Our goals are to instill awareness and appreciation of nature, to demonstrate responsibility for the environment, and to promote a sense of place, where nature is accessible and inclusive for all. Above all, we seek to create memorable outdoor experiences for our campers!

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.
