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. Our high school junior naturalist program runs 9 to 3 each day, and is field-trip based. 

Elementary and middle school camps costs $100/week per child for non-members and $90/week/child for members. Each week of camp includes a boat trip with McCoy's River and Boat Tours.

Our high school junior naturalist program is $150/child for members and $135 for non-members.

 The shorter mini-camps run Tuesday-Thursday and cost $50/camp/child non-members and $45/camp/child for members. We do not take the youngest campers on the Boat Tour.

Notes:

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!
