Most weeks are $150/camper (including deposit) for PVAS members, with some variation depending on the week’s theme and activities. You can choose to reserve your spot with a $50 registration deposit per session per camper and pay the balance of the fee by May 15 (online or by check) by contacting Ellen Murphy at Ellen@PotomacAudubon.org. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable to another session.
If you wish to pay by check (full fee or deposit), send the check to Audubon Discovery Camp, PO Box 578, Shepherdstown WV 25443.
Prices are higher for non-PVAS members, but the fee includes a 1-year Family Membership. Family membership fees are not refundable, but you do receive membership benefits which include discounts to many PVAS programs, discounts at participating nature centers (those will be listed on the PVAS website) and an invitation to the PVAS membership gathering in May/June each year. (It's family friendly!) In addition, we are working with local businesses to arrange for discounts and as these are arranged, they will be posted on our website as well.
Camp Scholarships are available and we are eager to help your child attend camp! The 2016 Scholarship Application for Audubon Discovery Camp is
due in early April. The form is simple, but we ask your camper to
write a short statement about why they would like to attend camp and
require a letter of reference from a teacher or family friend.
Registration Registration is available from February – July. Sessions tend to book early, so early registration is recommended! To receive an e-mail reminder when registration is open, of if you would like to register for a camp session by mail, contact camp director Ellen Murphy or call 304-676-8739.
Waiting Lists When camp sessions fill, we offer waiting lists for each sessions. There is no money required to be on a waiting list. Campers are placed in a session in the order they registered for the waiting list. We encourage you to sign up for a waiting list. Although there are no guarantees, in the past, almost every camper on a waiting list has been placed in a camp session.
If you have to
cancel a camp registration, please let us know as soon as possible so
that we can offer your spot to another family. The $50 deposit for each
session is non-refundable. PVAS membership fees are also not
refunded. If a session must be cancelled, a full refund is given.
