Cherish sunsets, wild creatures and wild places. Have a love affair with the wonder and beauty of the earth. --Stewart Udall

Is your child interested in becoming a junior keeper for a week? This camp gives campers the opportunity to work with our Resident Bird Care staff and learn what it takes to care for and train over 35 different species of raptors. Campers will get nose to beak with the birds during flight training sessions, help feed them and also train some of our resident raptors!

Session 1: June 18-22, 2018 for ages 9-12 
Session 6: July 30-August 3 for ages 12-13 
Because of overwhelming response in previous years, there are two session of Raptor Keeper’s Camp this summer.
One is for ages 9-12 and the other for ages 12-14. 
Registration for Summer Camp is now closed. Please email LeeAnn Farr with questions.
