Overnight Camps

Overnight Camps are a welcoming learning environment for teens who have aged out of our Day Camps, as well as pre-teens and teens who are new to Bird Conservancy’s programs. Both On the Wing and Taking Flight are held in Jamestown, Colorado with transportation provided by Bird Conservancy from our headquarters in Brighton, CO. These programs delve further into the science behind bird conservation and offer opportunities for campers to learn about career opportunities, build connections with like-minded campers, and strengthen a sense of self as they prepare to look toward their futures.
