Audubon Community Nature Center’s Day Camps are run by a mix of seasoned naturalists, interns and trained assistants. All of the naturalists have over 10 years of experience working with children in informal education settings. Interns have some experience working with children and teach for a month at ACNC before they teach day camp. Middle and High School assistants go through a leadership course to learn expectations and more about leading small groups of children.

Day Camp is designed for children in pre-K through grade 12 to get out and explore the natural world. Structured and unstructured activities and play create a well-rounded, free-choice experience for all children. Camps run four days per week for eight weeks during the summer. Different age breakdowns occur on different weeks.
New this year: ACNC is offering early drop-off and later pick-up for campers. These are offered every week of camp and are titled Pre-Camp and Post-Camp for each week. This extends the camp day with activities and adventures for campers and gives adults more flexibility in their schedule. Prices and times are listed on the registration page.
Thank you 2019 Day Camp sponsors for your generous support.
