About this image

Only if we understand can we care. Only if we care will we help. Only if we help shall they be saved. – Jane Goodall

Is your child an aspiring young veterinarian who wants to get an early start? Throughout this camp your camper will learn all about avian medicine and have sessions with one of our staff vet techs playing the role of veterinarian in daily rounds examining X-rays and case studies of birds. With raptor encounters, outdoor adventures and lessons in our raptor hospital, campers will get a great sense of environmental awareness and a greater respect for the natural world around them!
