General Audubon Adventure Camp Information:

  • Our Audubon Adventure Camp sessions are led by our full-time experience educators who work year-round to provide learning opportunities for children and families through our Center programming. In addition, seasonal camp counselors and Center volunteers who have worked with children in educational, outdoor, and day-camp settings will join the camp staff.

  • On the first day of each session, parents/guardians must bring campers into the center to turn in any remaining paperwork, meet the staff and sign their camper in for the day. Camp staff will be curbside the remainder of the session so campers may be dropped-off and signed in without parents/guardians having to get out of the car.

  • Camp staff will be curbside at dismissal each day for pick-up and sign-out each day. All parents/guardians with permission to pick up campers must be listed on camper paperwork. A photo ID will be checked by camp staff each day.

  • Campers may bring a peanut-free snack (1/2 day programs) and/or lunch (full-day programs) each day. Please send an reusable water bottle with your camper each day. Please try to be as waste-free as possible and make sure campers' names are on any reusable container so they may be returned.
