John G. New Audubon Summer Day Camp
Delaware-Otsego Audubon Summer Youth Programs provide fun, hands-on experiences in natural science and environmental education through field investigations, crafts and games. Campers will explore a variety of habitats and learn about creatures that live there. There is limited space in these sessions; registrations are accepted on a first come, first served basis.
Full and partial scholarships to offset the per-child registration fee are distributed each year on a needs basis. Donations towards this dedicated fund are accepted throughout the year and are greatly appreciated.
