Audubon to Hold a Pair of Holiday Camps Dec. 27-28

December 21, 2023

JAMESTOWN, N.Y. – The Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) is offering two Holiday Camps when children can explore outdoors, play, climb, run, and engage their senses as they discover all that winter embodies.

The Wednesday, Dec. 27 camp is for ages 5-11. The Thursday, Dec. 28 camp is for ages 4-12. Both are 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

Kids can enjoy the winter holiday playing outdoors and being active. Cold, wind, and ice change the landscape and bring new things to learn about, play with, and explore. Learning and play are the themes of the day.

Children need to be dressed to be comfortable being out in the forecasted weather.

They also need to bring water, snacks, a lunch that does not require refrigeration, and extras of anything that might get wet.

Cost for the day is $48 or $36 for Nature Center member children. Additional siblings receive a $5 discount.

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by Monday, Dec. 25 for ages 5–11 for the Dec. 27 camp and Tuesday, Dec. 26 for ages 4–12 for the Dec. 28 camp.

For more information and to register, call (716) 569-2345 during business hours or go to and click through “Programs and Events.”

The nature center building will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

The Audubon Community Nature Center is located at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, N.Y., and Warren, Pa.
