With raptor encounters, hands-on activities and lessons live from our raptor hospital, campers will get a great sense of environmental awareness and a greater respect for the natural world around them! 
 
Nature’s Yucky Camp 
Does your child love the outdoors? This camp gives campers the opportunity to get messy in nature without getting in trouble for it! Campers will explore the “icky” things that happen in natural world and learn why those things are important. They will meet avian ambassadors, conduct science experiments, and problem solve ways to help the environment through hands-on activities! 
 
Birds Inspire Camp 
Does your child have an artistic side and a love of science? Birds Inspire Camp is all about celebrating how birds have inspired humans. Campers will be immersed in a wide variety of STEAM related activities as they learn how birds impact the human world. Each day of camp will focus on different ways birds have inspired art, engineering, stories, technology, and so much more! After participating in hands-on activities and having nose to beak experiences with our ambassador birds, your child will most definitely leave camp inspired!
