Audubon Summer Camp

Audubon Summer Camp

255 Sherman Hollow Rd.
Huntington, VT 05462
802-434-3068

Audubon Vermont offers two summer day-camps: Preschool Nature Camp (ages 3-5), Ecology Day Camp (ages 6-12). Audubon invites children to explore the world around them, use all their senses, and connect with plants and animals of the Green Mountains. Each day there are moments of magic: around the bonfire, on a hike to Lookout Rock, or scooping for critters at the pond. Audubon's staff of experienced naturalists and educators are dedicated to providing inclusive and exploratory experiences for all. We will inspire your child to deeply connect with the natural world, build on their talents, and expand their ecological knowledge.
