Registration for ABA Young Birder Camps is Open for 2018

Camp Colorado and Camp Avocet are back for 2018!

If you’re a young birder, or if you know a young birder, head over to our Events site to get information on the ABA’s two young birder camps, back again and ready to offer another year of unforgettable experiences for birders age 13-18.

Camp Colorado I  June 23 – June 29, 2018

Camp Colorado II July 3 – July 9, 2018

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. An amazing diversity of ecosystems lie within a few hours drive, giving each camper the opportunity to experience many of Colorado’s varied life zones and associated birds. Special birds of note we will look for include White-tailed Ptarmigan, Ferruginous Hawk, Prairie Falcon, Mountain Plover, Burrowing Owl, Williamson’s Sapsucker, McCown’s and Chestnut-collared longspurs, and Brown-capped Rosy-Finch, to name just a few!

Camp Avocet  July 28-August 3, 2018

Are you looking for shorebirds? Well, our newest camp, Camp Avocet, is back for another year and will be stacked full of migrants such as dowitchers, Black-necked Stilt, Semipalmated, Western and Least Sandpipers, and of course American Avocets numbering in the hundreds.  Delaware boasts an outstanding fall migration of shorebirds with easy access and fabulous viewing opportunities.

Thanks to generous sponsors like Rockjumper Birding Worldwide, the ABA is proud to offer limited scholarships to both of our camps. Please pass this information on to interested young birders! We’d love to see you at one of our camps in 2018!
