It’s Never to Early to Plan Vacation Camps!

With frosty mornings becoming more common and 2023 on the horizon, we are excitedly planning February and April school vacation camps at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth and Fields Pond in Holden! Both centers will offer full-day camps for children currently enrolled in grades K-3 at Gilsland Farm and grades 1-3 at Fields Pond.

In February, campers will bundle up to follow animal tracks, explore winter wildlife adaptations, and experiment with snow science.

And in April, campers relish each new sign of spring as we welcome back migrating birds, learn about life cycles, and celebrate Earth Day together. 

All our camps integrate daily hands-on science experiences and nature immersion with time for games, teamwork, and play. 

We anticipate that spots will fill quickly. Please note the following program & registration dates below:

February school vacation camp: February 21-24, 2023 // Registration opens January 10, 2023

April school vacation camp: April 17-21, 2023 // Registration opens February 28, 2023

Scholarships are available for both sessions! We reserve spots for scholarship recipients. For more information, please call (207) 781-2330, ext. 224 or email scholarships@maineaudubon.org

Updates and more information will be posted soon on our website at maineaudubon.org/camps. The best way to stay informed is to sign up for our weekly events email and monthly eNews. 

Wondering about preschool camps? We are working to maximize the number of full-day spots available to K-3 campers during school vacation weeks, and look forward to welcoming preschool campers back to Gilsland Farm this summer.

In the meantime, preschool-aged naturalists can join us for Winter Family Fun (at Gilsland Farm or at Fields Pond) or  a Read & Ramble outdoor storytime (at Gilsland Farm or at Fields Pond)
