Make plans for Vacation Days at Audubon!

Spend your vacation break with us, outside at Audubon! Our vacation camps invite children to explore the world around them 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 at the pond.

Grades K-5th

Registration will open February 1st at 6pm on CampDoc, our secure camp registration portal.

February 27: Bird-friendly Maple Monday
Kick off our sweetest season with a fun-filled, active day that is all about making maple syrup!  We'll tap trees in the Audubon Center's 500-tap sugarbush, collect the sap, and see first-hand how an evaporator works. Audubon's sugarbush offers great places for birds to forage, hide, and raise young. We'll discover why it's great to practice Bird-friendly Maple Sugaring.  Don't forget to bring your sweet tooth, since we'll wrap up this busy day with a syrup taste test! 
February 28: Tracking Tuesday
Who made those tracks crossing through the fields? The best way to find out is to follow them! Spend a winter day at Audubon following the comings and goings of our furred and feathered friends.  Learn the art of tracking, including how to identify and interpret wildlife tracks and clues.
March 1: Wildersness Skills Wednesday
What does it take to live off the land? Staying warm is crucial to our survival! We'll dive into the primitive skill of fire building and cover everything from fire structure to cooking over an open flame. 
March 2: Thursday Bird Day
Grab a pair of binoculars as we learn what makes our Vermont forests so special for our feathered friends. We’ll round out the day with games, hikes and activities to better your birding skills.
March 3: Friday Forts
No need to brave the elements, learn how to make shelter out of sticks, snow, and leaves! We'll spend the day making cozy spaces in the woods and fields of the Green Mountain Audubon Center.

April 24th: Migration Monday
It’s that time of year when we celebrate the return of our migratory friends. We will get out with our binoculars and hand lenses to explore Audubon's forests, fields, and ponds in search of early avian, amphibian, and insect arrivals. Games will aid in our understanding of migration and how these fascinating animals return to our home every year. 
 April 25th: Toad-ally Awesome Tuesday
April showers bring...amphibians! Whether they are quietly moving through the forest or busy singing by the pond, these amazing creatures are on the move. We too will be moving during this fun day of exploring the Audubon Center’s ponds and forests for signs of our amphibian friends.
April 26th: Wet and Wild Wednesday
Swamps, ponds and wetlands, oh my!  This day is all about water. We’ll follow the journey of a drop of water, and soak up the springtime with some wet and wild games.  Pull on your mud boots for an adventure to find salamanders, tadpoles, and other wildlife in and around the watery worlds of the Audubon Center.   
April 27th: Trailblazing Thursday
Where do you want to go today?  If you’re interested in exploring new places, then this day is for you!  We’ll spend an exciting day navigating through forests and fields and finding our way using maps and compasses.
April 28th: Spring Ephemeral Flowers Friday
If you blink you will miss these early and short-lived arrivals to our forest floor. And we're not just talking about flower fairies! Join us to learn and marvel in the wonder of local plants.
