Session 1: Wow! All About Birds

July 15 at 10–11:30 am MDT
Camp counselors: Lead – Zach Hutchinson, Co-counselors: Jacelyn Downey & Keith Bruno ​

This session is dedicated to the main topic of Audubon: birds. Campers will experience a dynamic, hands-on, and interactive virtual summer camp dedicated to the anatomy and behavior of birds. From tiny migratory songbirds to giant apex predatory raptors, campers will leave this session with a sense of wonder and awe for the amazing adaptations of birds. Registration closes July 6. Register here

Session 2: Habitat Heroes

July 22 at 10–11:30 am MDT
Camp counselors: Lead – Keith Bruno, Co-counselors: Jacelyn Downey & Zach Hutchinson ​

Plants are the true superheroes of the world, harnessing the power of the sun for all of us! But how do plants take in this energy? What do they do once they get it? These questions and more will be answered in this session about plants. Campers will have hands-on demonstrations, learn about native and invasive plants, and even have a native plant to grow on their own. And in doing so they’ll build stronger and more diverse habitats for birds and other wildlife in their communities. Registration closes July 13. Register here

Session 3: Owl Prowl

July 29th at 10–11:30 am MDT
Camp counselors: Lead – Zach Hutchinson, Co-counselors: Jacelyn Downey & Keith Bruno ​

Our third virtual summer camp session is dedicated to the hooting, silent-flying, and pellet spitting owls of the Rockies! Campers will be guided through a dissection of an owl pellet, learning the various types of food sources that owls will eat during their nocturnal hunts.  Registration closes July 20.  Register here

Session 4: Wild About Water

August 5th at 10–11:30 am MDT

Camp counselors: Lead – Jacelyn Downey, Co-counselors: Keith Bruno & Zach Hutchinson

Wonderful water everywhere, we’re going to get wet!  Wild About Water is a session dedicated to the most precious resource. Campers will learn firsthand how a water system can affect the plants and animals around it, even humans! But what is inside water that makes it “clean” or “dirty”? Campers will test water, learn about feathers, water adaptations, and more!  Registration closes July 27.  Register here
