Raptor Keeper’s Camp – June 19-23

Camp Forms 2017

Ever wonder how that dolphin learned to turn a flip on the other side of the pool, or how that owl learned to fly around an amphitheater and land on a trainer’s glove? This is the camp for you! Campers become junior keepers for a week and spend time with our Resident Bird Care staff to learn what it takes to care for and train over 20 species of raptors. Camper keepers will learn about concepts of animal training, get up close and personal during flight training sessions, participate in food preparation and distribution and help train some of our resident rats. 

Raptor Keeper’s Camp is for ages 11-14. You must be age 11 by the first day of camp.

Session 2: June 19-23 Raptor Keeper's Camp, Ages 11-14
