Outdoor adventure and learning await campers at Fields Pond this summer! Venture into our 230-acre lakefront wildlife sanctuary and catch a glimpse of some of the wildlife that call it home. Seek out salamanders hidden beneath the forest floor, get a close-up look at frogs at the water’s edge, hunker down under the branches of a giant pine tree, and listen for loons calling across the pond.

Through the generosity of local businesses, organizations and individuals, partial scholarships are available for Maine residents who need financial assistance. For more information, please call: (207) 781-2330 or email scholarships@maineaudubon.org

Summer camp registration will open on April 1, 2020 at 10 am. Spots will be held in each session for scholarship applicants.
