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!
This is difficult for me to write, but 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’ve decided to cancel our summer camp programming as scheduled. Thank you for your care and commitment as we work together to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. We truly appreciate your support of our programs.
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.
Know that we look forward to sharing the joy of birds and the outdoors with you online for now, and at Audubon Vermont as soon as it is safe to do so. I am hopeful that we will be able to offer some sort of camp programing, and provide much needed childcare, after the governor eases restrictions and we get a sense of what that might look like. We’ll be in touch again as soon as we know when and how we are able to reopen.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Be well, stay safe, and please be in touch. I am looking forward to connecting with you soon.
Audubon Vermont Summer Camp Director
