    ABA Announces 2013 Young Birder Camps!

    The American Birding Association (ABA) is pleased to announce their 2013 Young Birder Summer Camps – Camp Colorado and Camp Avocet.

    2013 ABA Camps full page-r2

    Camp Colorado, running from July 21-27, will be held once again in Estes Park, Colorado, bordering the majestic Rocky Mountain National Park.  Campers will find plenty of opportunities to take their birding skills to the next level, meet other young people with similar interests, explore careers in birding and ornithology, and, of course, learn about the bird life and natural history of northern Colorado.

    ABA’s newest camp, Camp Avocet, running August 11-17, will be held at the stunning Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, Delaware, only minutes away from two major National Wildlife Refuges and a short ride to the northernmost cypress swamp in North America.  Migrating shorebirds will be a main study and focus for this camp but due to the grand diversity of southern Delaware’s bird-rich habitats, over 150 species of birds will be seen and studied during this seven-day camp extravaganza!

    As always, both ABA Camps will be staffed by world-class adult birders specializing in educating today’s crop of youth birders.  Our camper-to-teacher ratio will be 3-to-1, with guest instructors contributing their unique talents each day.  For complete details, information and registration, please visit  www.events.aba.org  or contact Bill Stewart at bstewart AT aba.org.

    Scholarships made possible in part through our Legacy Sponsor – Leica Sport Optics, plus the DuPont Company and the Richard E. Andrews Memorial Scholarship are available for young birders aged 13-18 interested in attending either ABA Camp.

      I’ve often heard that there are two career options for young birders: go into ecology or biology and spend your working hours birding, or go into a more profitable field and use your spare time to bird. […]

In mid-August 2014, a committed staff and a crew of very enthusiastic and almost unbelievably skilled campers assembled in Lewes, in southern Delaware, for the second […]
