Audubon Adventure Camp

A nature-based, fully inclusive experience perfect for campers between the ages of 4 and 8!

 Registration opens February 11th at 10am!

Every weekly session begins with an all-camp welcome and ends with an all-camp show. Our campers build lasting friendships with their peers as they create, explore, investigate and, most importantly, enjoy the great outdoors.  Audubon Adventure Summer Camp is a proud Partner of the National Inclusion Program.  We welcome campers of ALL abilities.  Have a slightly older camp?  Check out Expedition Camp or Audubon Youth Leaders!
