Summer Camp

The Pascagoula River Audubon Center offers fun, nature-based summer camp programming for a variety of age groups- from children entering kindergarten to young adults graduating high school. Elementary, middle school, and mini-camps run from 9-12 at the Center. 

All children participating in Camp 2018 will explore through hands-on activities the natural world. All of our themes in 2018 revolve around the River and all children will get to explore our special  traveling Smithsonian Water/Ways exhibit. Children in the elementary, middle, and high school camps will each take a boat tour with McCoy's River and Swamp tours (if the weather permits).  Each camper will receive a summer camp tee shirt and be invited to participate in our end-of-summer art exhibition taking place in August!

Camp costs $115 for non-members and $104 for members. 

The shorter mini-camps for ages 4-6 run Tuesday-Thursday and cost $60 camp/child non-members and $54/camp/child for members. We do not take the youngest campers on the Boat Tour. These campers will receive a summer camp tee shirt and be invited to participate in our end-of-summer art exhibition taking place in August.

Summer camp activities are based on the Mississippi state frameworks for Math and Science. Camp activities foster a “hands on, minds on” approach to learning, and prepare them for the upcoming school year. This encourages students to become excited about nature, data collection, art, and exploration.

Participants are in groups based on grade level, though special arrangements can be made to keep siblings/relatives or close friends together if it will increase the enjoyment and comfort level of our campers!
