The Sharon Audubon Center Summer Nature Program offers themed and general nature camps for children entering Pre-K through Grade 12. The programs have a small student to teacher ratio and are interactive, educational, and lots of fun! Get ready for an exciting outdoor adventure, learning about animals and plants. Each session includes outdoor exploration, hikes, live animal programs, hands-on activities and experiments, games, and crafts—so there is something of interest for everyone.  

The Sharon Audubon Center Summer Nature Program is a Connecticut state certified day camp. Camp sessions are week-long and take place at the Sharon Audubon Center, located on Route 4 in Sharon, Connecticut. *There is no camp on Wednesday, July 4th. 

There are so many exciting possibilities, you won’t want to miss out on all the fun!

Although many weeks are "themed," certain popular activities (such as a live bird presentation and pond exploration) are offered during every week. Parents may register their child(ren) for one or multiple theme weeks, but spaces are filled on a first come, first served basis. Each K-6 camp session is limited to 12 campers, but at times, depending on staff availability and the particular session, up to 16 students may be allowed. 7th-12th grade sessions are limited to 10 campers.

If the camp you would like to register for is filled, do not be discouraged.  If you sign up online and the camp is already filled, you will automatically be placed on a wait list and will not be charged unless a space opens up. Sometimes, spaces do open up!

Cancellation / Refund Policy

Payment (minus 15%) will be refunded for cancellations received at least two weeks prior to the first day of camp to be attended. Refund requests must be received in writing within two weeks after that camp session ends. If Audubon cancels the session, a refund will be made in full for that session only. NO REFUNDS will be given for cancellations within two weeks of the camp session.
