Mass Audubon Camps Win Mommy Poppins “Boston Besties” Award
Michael P. O'Connor
Awards were presented in 24 categories, based on parent votes for “the best family businesses and resources” in Boston. In praising the respected conservation organization’s camps, Boston Besties judges wrote:
"Mass Audubon has a wide range of day camps for nature-loving kids, but families need to plan ahead to get a spot in one of the very popular summer programs. Campers spend the majority of their time outdoors, connecting with and exploring nature alongside like-minded friends and counselors. Each of the 11 days camps in the Boston area has a unique focus designed to take fullest advantage of its location."
Mass Audubon protects 36,500 acres of land throughout Massachusetts, saving birds and other wildlife, and making nature accessible to all. As Massachusetts’ largest nature conservation nonprofit, we welcome more than a half million visitors a year to our wildlife sanctuaries and 20 nature centers. From inspiring hilltop views to breathtaking coastal landscapes, serene woods, and working farms, we believe in protecting our state’s natural treasures for wildlife and for all people—a vision shared in 1896 by our founders, two extraordinary Boston women. Today, Mass Audubon is a nationally recognized environmental education leader, offering thousands of camp, school, and adult programs that get over 225,000 kids and adults outdoors every year. With more than 125,000 members and supporters, we advocate on Beacon Hill and beyond, and conduct conservation research to preserve the natural heritage of our beautiful state for today’s and future generations.
