Share the beauty and mystery of Hog Island with a child ages 8-12.
The Audubon Family Camp provides a unique opportunity for families to enjoy nature together. The pristine environment on Hog Island offers a wide variety of habitats for nature study. Campers cruise Muscongus Bay in search of seabirds and seals. They examine aquatic insects and amphibians in a freshwater pond, look for mushrooms and wildflowers in the forest, and search for fish and marine invertebrates along the intertidal zone. Evening programs include night hikes and stargazing. Each day begins with an optional early morning bird walk and ends with a family campfire program filled with songs, stories, and skits.
The camp is designed for families with children ages 8-12. A family unit includes at least one child and one adult. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles are welcome. The end of August is an ideal time to enjoy the natural world in mid-coast Maine. Fall migration is in full swing, the salt marshes are changing colors, bioluminescence sparkles through the salt water, and the northern lights might be dancing across the sky. Experience an educational family vacation you will never forget.
