2024 Camp Session Pricing

Mass Audubon is committed to ensuring that every family that wants their child to experience summer camp should have the opportunity to do so. A sliding scale model helps us work toward that goal through an easy and dependable process for families. With the sliding scale structure, every family enrolls for camp at a tuition rate based on their annual gross income and size of family. 

Mass Audubon Membership

Registering for camp is one of the many benefits of Mass Audubon membership. In order to register for camp, your membership must be current through the end of your camper's last session; if you need to purchase or renew your membership, you should do so as part of your camp registration transaction. 

All camp families registering at Tiers 1–3 will receive a free one-year Family membership (new or renewal), thanks to the generosity of members at the Protector level and higher who chose to donate their free gift membership benefit. 

Review Sliding Scale Tiers

Due to overwhelming need for financial assistance, we have closed registration for Tiers 1-3. To register for a lower tier, call Broadmoor directly at 508-315-6721. As we continue to secure funding across the state, we will open more spaces at lower tiers where possible. 

Our statewide goal is to have a healthy balance of campers from all income tiers attend Mass Audubon camps in order to increase equitable access to camp for as many families as possible while still securing enough revenue to continue providing the excellent camp experience our communities have come to expect from Mass Audubon camps. 

Prior to Registration

To make sure you’re prepared to register for camp, please read our registration instructions and camp policies, which include changes to pricing and membership.
