2021 Update (April 5, 2021):
Maine Audubon is planning to host summer camp programs at Gilsland Farm and Fields Pond in July and August 2021. Due to continued uncertainty related to COVID-19, we may still choose to cancel programs should safety or program quality warrant it. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Summer camps are now full. We allowed pre-registration for families who had registered and were bumped from spots in 2020. Due to extremely limited capacity and unprecedented demand, these spots filled very quickly and we regret not being able to host more families this year. You may still join the waitlist or apply for a scholarship spot. We will hold spots in each session at Gilsland Farm and Fields Pond for need-based scholarship applicants.

To ensure the safety of participants, families, and staff, we will implement measures that include smaller camp groups, daily screenings, and increased cleaning and sanitation. Masks will be required, and campers will sit at least six feet apart when they remove masks for lunch and snack. Programs will take place entirely outdoors, though campers will shelter indoors (with more than six feet of distancing) should unsafe weather conditions arise. We will adhere to all MCDC recommendations and guidelines for camps and schools, as well as guidance from the American Camp Association. If your child or a member of your household is at higher risk for complications related to COVID-19, please speak with your healthcare provider to determine if attending camp is the right choice for your family.
Maine Audubon programs staff will be planning and restoring other programs as conditions allow, and we are hope to be able to accommodate more youth and their families.
