On The Wing – Overnight Camp (Ages 15-17)
June 23, 2022 - July 1, 2022$1,125
This camp is for teenagers who aspire to careers in natural resources. Based at a residential camp near Rocky Mountain National Park, campers will have the opportunity to design and conduct mini-research projects in the surrounding forests. Campers will work together to develop a hypothesis, collect scientific data, draw conclusions from their data, write technical scientific research papers and present their findings to a group of natural resource professionals. In addition, campers will take part in traditional camp activities and learn field journaling, field sketching, field guide and binocular use, bird and plant identification, and field biology, by observing and participating in studies of Bird Conservancy and National Park Service biologists. The cost of this camp includes all lodging, meals and transportation during the session.
Scholarships are available for all camps!
Applications for scholarships can be made through our online scholarship application.
