LINCOLN, MA—Mass Audubon camps have won in the “Best Summer Camp” category of the 2016 Boston Besties Guide, published by the popular online parent resource Mommy Poppins.

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."
