Summer Camp 2020
In order to keep our campers, high school CITs, staff, and summer visitors to the Green Mountain Audubon Center safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the decision to cancel our usual summer camp programming. This decision was not made lightly– summer camp is our favorite time of year. In making this decision we could not imagine running programs “as usual” when the health and safety of your children and family as well as Audubon staff, interns, and volunteers would be at risk.
The Path Forward.
Thank you for your patience as we have worked to completely re-envision our summer and take your feedback into account. I know many of you rely on Audubon Vermont’s summer programs for childcare, and we have been wracking our brains to come up with a solution. We realize that there is no perfect solution that feels as good as our usual summer camps, but we think what we have to offer will provide some parenting relief, fun learning opportunities for children to get outside this summer, connection with other students and Audubon Teacher-Naturalists, and eventually, an opportunity to come together at the Green Mountain Audubon Center.
Be well, stay safe, and please be in touch. I am looking forward to connecting with you soon.
Audubon Vermont Summer Camp Director
Starting in July and running through August, our Camp in a Kit brings the Audubon Vermont experience home. Running 4 days during the week, campers will join a one-hour private event with 11 other campers and an Audubon teacher. In that time together we will dive into our theme for the week.
Campers can pick up their Camp in a Kit (or have it mailed) with activities to do together live with an Audubon teacher and will be given fun activities to do on their own after the call. During the meeting time, campers can share with one another what they learned in their outside explore time, ask questions to our staff, and connect with other campers. For ages 7-12 (please direct questions about younger siblings joining to Debbie Archer)
Registration opens Thursday, June 25: vt.audubon.org/events and links below
Special thanks to Audubon Pennsylvania and all their hard working staff for sharing their ideas and content with us.
