About Wild at Art Camp
Wild at Art Nature Camp focuses on giving your child the chance to experience the transformative power of art and nature. A harmonious balance between outdoor exploration and thoughtful art projects challenge all of your child’s senses to absorb their environment, fostering a long-lasting relationship between them and the natural world.
Each camper comes to understand their place in nature as well as the importance of preserving it. Adventures in art and ecology will keep your child engaged and excited to come back and learn more.
Our 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.
