Audubon has a long history of providing life-changing experiences in natural settings. The National Audubon Society has long promoted the attendance of young people and adults at summer camps, which serves to acquaint them with the glories of nature. The first summer camp was held in 1936 on Hog Island near Rockland, Maine.
On an island away from it all, is where you will find yourself if you attend the National Audubon Society Nature Camp on Hog Island, Maine. This camp offers a unique experience. The island is only accessible by boat. A 330-acre island located in Muscongus Bay along the Mid Coast of Maine, Hog Island has been the home to the Audubon Camp since 1936.
Every session is unique and many are led by some of the most respected environmental educators and naturalists in the United States. The island is home to a number of woodland birds, spruce forests, meadows and rocky tide pools. Lobster boats motor into and out of the bay.
The Camp is held in rustic 19th century buildings, which serves to take the campers back to a simpler time. Attending the National Audubon Society Nature Camp on Hog Island helps to support the Society's work for wildlife conversation in the State of Maine.
