Share the beauty and mystery of Hog Island with a child ages 8-13. Must be in this age range during the whole camp week.

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 8-13. A family unit includes at least one child and one adult. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles are welcome. In August the bioluminescence sparkles through the salt water, the puffins prepare for migration, and the night sky is full of stars. Experience an educational family vacation you will never forget.

This program is no longer active.
