Summer Camp

Thanks for a great Summer Camp Season. See you in 2022!

Join Portland Audubon for truly amazing, nature-based adventures all summer long! Day Camps combine art, science experiments and games with explorations of our beautiful, 172-acre Nature Sanctuary neighboring Forest Park.

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!

Week-long day camps start between 8:30/8:45 am and end 3:15/3:30 pm daily.

*These all outdoor programs are limited to a maximum of ten children, and will follow all social distancing and safety protocols dictated by the Oregon Health Administration.
