Summer Camp Sliding Scale

Please read about our new sliding scale before you register for camp.

We’re offering a NEW Sliding Scale fee structure to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to experience camp with Portland Audubon. Families are invited to pay at the level that works for them!

Portland Audubon is committed to creating an inclusive summer camp that welcomes families from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Give directly to our Spencer Higgins Education Fund to support this work and ensure environmental education is accessible to all children.

At Portland Audubon Camp…

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!
