Day Camps

2022 Update

Summer day camps

Day camps will run throughout the summer at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center (Falmouth) and Fields Pond Audubon Center (Holden). We offer week-long sessions for both preschool (3-5) and school-age children (completed grades K-5) that encourage hands-on exploration of the natural world.  Due to continued uncertainty related to COVID-19, we may still choose to cancel programs should safety or program quality warrant it.

Gilsland Farm, Falmouth (Greater Portland) (SOLD OUT)

Fields Pond, Holden (Greater Bangor): SPOTS STILL LEFT FOR GRADES 2-4!
