Audubon’s Summer Camps get kids ages 3½ to 15 outside exploring our local environment —fields, forests, ponds, streams, and the coast of Narragansett Bay.  Our camps are conveniently located at our wildlife refuges in Bristol, and Seekonk.  It’s the perfect environment for adventure, exploration, learning, and loads of fun!  It’s what summer camp should be!
