Camp Audubon: 2020 Summer Camps
Camp Audubon is doing something NEW this summer and we invite you to join us!
Audubon Adventures, Camp Audubon at Home, and Backyard Exploration Packs are part of a new line-up of camps in 2020. Your campers will get the benefit of learning about nature from environmental educators who help children explore the great outdoors year-round by tapping into ANS's 123-year-legacy of enjoying, protecting, and teaching about nature.
Woodend Sanctuary is a 40-acre oasis just outside Washington, DC in the middle of Chevy Chase, MD. Bordering Rock Creek Park, the sanctuary contains mature woods and meadows, a pond, and an intermittent stream that provide habitat for many birds, insects, deer, rabbits, and foxes. Open lawns provide activity space, and well-maintained nature trails permit safe nature exploration.
Camp Audubon provides day, travel, and overnight camps for families in the DC metro area. Located on a 40-acre nature sanctuary, our camps provide high-quality environmental science education and good old-fashioned camp fun!
For questions about the summer camp program, including camp-specific inquires, medical issues, and scholarship information, please call Nora Kelly (June Bug), the Camp Director, at 301-652-9188 x15. For registration information, contact Pam Oves at 301-652-9188 x16 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp Audubon is committed to providing the best possible camp experience for your child.
All camps are taught by experienced environmental educators, maintaining a child-teacher ratio of 8-1.
Camps run from 8:45 am to either 3 pm or 4 pm with an extended care option until 6 pm.
We offer a Teen Naturalist Training (TNT) program, similar to a CIT program, for teens entering 9th or 10th grade.
From Pre-K through high school we have an outdoor adventure that is right for your child, whether it is looking for salamanders under a log, hiking the AT, cooking food harvested from our Children's Garden, or visiting the National Zoo.
