Raptor Camp

For the up-and-coming naturalist

Our week-long Raptor Camp is held annually each summer in mid- to late-July or  early August and is perfect for young naturalists, particularly those interested in the outdoors, birds, and raptors. Each day includes a hike to a scenic lookout, use of binoculars, a chance to meet Sanctuary scientists, and a focus on a specific raptor species, along with fun activities and crafts. To learn more or to register for the next camp, call Director of Education Erin Brown at 610-756-6000 x208.
