2023 Camp Session Pricing

Please note that the prices below are rounded to the nearest dollar for simplicity. Actual prices may include cents. Learn more about our registration and pricing policies including deposits, refunds, financial aid, and membership discounts.

Sliding Scale

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. Learn more about sliding scale

Due to overwhelming need for financial assistance, we have closed sliding scale registration for Tiers 1–4. Full-price registration at Tier 5 will remain open until all available spaces are filled. If you are unable to pay the full tuition for camp, we encourage you to add your name to our waitlist.
