From our friends at Portland Audubon Summer Camp
Join Portland Audubon for truly amazing, nature-based adventures all summer long!
Kids can explore the beauty and wildlife of our 172-acre Sanctuary, get to know the scenic vistas of Portland’s most gorgeous parks and wildscapes, or spend a week (or more!) camping, hiking and adventuring in the Pacific Northwest. With more than 60 different camps, there’s a place for every young learner to explore, create and grow with us.
All of our camps combine science, games and creative play with meaningful, lasting connections with nature. We know that every child learns in their own way, and we invite kids to learn by doing, seeing, touching, smelling, hearing and, at times, tasting! Our holistic, student-directed approach allows learning to unfold from the student’s personal passions and interests in the natural world. Campers are also invited to express themselves individually through art, poetry, skits, and conservation action, and we give children opportunities to master the skills and crafts that build competence and self-reliance in the outdoors.
Each week-long camp, led by our expert educators, helps children bring their authentic selves to learning, playing, and making friends – taking them on a journey they will remember for a lifetime. Together, we create a culture of care and respect for each other and the Earth through teamwork and big belly laughs. Come learn and play at Portland Audubon this summer!
