Audubon Sprout Camp:

Audubon Sprout Camp is designed to give our youngest budding naturalists the opportunity to plant their roots in the natural world around them by exploring various habitats and participating in hands-on activities while meeting new friends. Campers will experience read-alongs and songs, get creative with crafts and go on exciting scavenger hunts and hikes around the park getting an upclose look at all of nature. Our camp staff will plant the seeds of a lifelong love of nature in your sprout! Children MUST be potty-trained to attend the preschool session of Audubon Sprout Camp.

General Audubon Adventure Camp Information:

  • Our Audubon Adventure Camp sessions are led by our full-time experienced 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/lunch. 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.
