Adventure with Audubon!

About our Camps

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!

Summer Matters

Governor Scott has declared that Summer Matters and we could not agree more! You might have found our program through the state's Summer Matters Program Map. If you are interested in attending our programs but are facing a financial hardship, please fill out a scholarship application. We welcome scholarship requests in any amount that will help make camp more affordable for you.

Summer camp 2024 lottery is now open until March 3rd.

We will be implementing a new registration process this year for our summer day camps. We feel an incredible amount of support from our community and are honored that our camps have grown in popularity. We have done our best to make increases where we can, including hiring more summer staff and strengthening our Counselor-in-Training program. However, we have maxed out our space, and remain committed to low camper: instructor ratios for our outdoor programs. We are committed to improving access to our programs and a situation where the fastest internet gets the space is not where we want to be. We also want to turn down the stress and urgency where we can, so here is what you can expect this year: 

  • We are moving to a lottery. Families will apply to the camps in which they are interested.  

  • You will have between February 15 and March 3 to apply for camps. You can apply any time during this window. You will apply for each camp in which you are interested, for each camper. 

  • You can apply for scholarship funding at the same time you apply for camp. 

  • Campers will be selected for no more than 2 camps.

  • We will do our best to take siblings into consideration, but we cannot guarantee that siblings will get into the same camp or week (which was true of our old system as well).

  • Families will be notified of their acceptance into camp on March 8 and will have until March 21st at 11:59pm to secure their camp spot by paying either the deposit (30% tuition) or paying in full. Unclaimed spaces go to families on the waitlist starting March 22nd 

  • The application will serve as our waitlist, so if you missed the lottery application window, you can still apply to be considered for our waitlists. 

  • Camp balances must be paid down by April 21st or families forfeit their spot and deposit. If you need more time to pay, please call our office to set up a payment plan. Unpaid camps go to campers on the waitlist.
