GIRLS ROCK MATH
Girls Rock Math is an empowering, arts-based math camp. Our camps offer engaging themes that capture a girls’ interest and imagination, and we use that as a catalyst for math growth, through real-life, hands-on math projects. Creative and fun experiences with math help develop confidence, excitement, and joy around learning.

Audubon started Nature Camp in 1982, and for over 40 years we’ve built a reputation for quality environmental learning, emphasizing experiential outdoor activities that instill an appreciation for nature. Small group instruction with experienced naturalists inspires children to become an explorer and a steward of the land while engaging with a variety of nature based topics. Scholarships available.
