Summer Day Camp

Adventure with Audubon!

Our day camps invite children to explore the world around them, get in touch with all of their senses, and connect to the plants and animals that call the Green Mountains home. There are moments of magic every day at camp, whether around the bonfire, on a hike to Lookout Rock, or scooping for critters at the pond.  

Audubon's staff of experienced naturalists and educators is dedicated to providing a fun and educational experience for all campers.  We want to inspire your child to connect more deeply with the natural world, build on their talents, and expand their ecological knowledge. While attending our day camps in Huntington, Vermont, they are bound to experience the thrill of hands-on exploration while enjoying the beautiful scenery that only the Green Mountains can offer!

    We process charges manually. When you hit submit on your payment page, our registration systems saves your place in line and selections but does not charge your card until our Camp Director checks your information on our end.

If you have any questions about this, dont hesitat to call.

    Cancellations made within 30 days notice of the first day of the program will receive a full refund less a $30 administrative fee. Cancellations made at least two weeks before the first day of the program will receive half of their tuition less a $30 administrative fee. Cancellations made less than two weeks before the first day of the program will not receive a refund.
  • Do you offer scholarships?
    Yes! Take a look at the Preschool Nature Camp and Ecology Day Camp pages for details. The earlier you get your application in, the better!
  • Do you have options for carpooling?
    Yes! We maintain a list of people interested in carpooling. You can add your name to the list when you register for camp. Click the box next to “share my information” in the registration questions section. You must do this for every camp you sign up for. We will share your first name, email address, and town with other camp families who have also agreed. Please note that arranging carpooling is up to you. If you forgot to click this box, please call our office to have your information listed.

About Camp

  • What do you do at camp?
    Get an insider-look at Summer Camp through last year's Summer Camp Blog!
  • Do you go swimming?
    Because we do not have lifeguards on duty, we do not swim at camp. However, that does not stop us from visiting the river on hot days to cool off!
