About this image

Is your child new to the raptor game? This camp is for the young raptor novice who wants to dive into the world of raptors and birds of prey. Your camper will get to interact with all the different raptors our center has to offer and participate in outdoor activities. Campers will also meet the reptiles that live at Latta Nature Center, experience birds nose to beak and enjoy different activities throughout the week. What a way to get your budding environmentaist excited about raptors and their habitats!
