Desert Dwellers and Winged Wonders

Bring the magic of birds to your summer camp!

Active… Engaging... Educational… The perfect addition to your camp!

Who better to bring the magic of birds to YOUR camp than Audubon? For over 100 years, our organization has been engaging people of all ages with birds in unique and innovative ways. Birds surround us at home as well as on the trail and are a ready bridge to the natural world. Just one inspiring experience with birds at camp can spark a lifelong passion not only for birds but for their habitats as well. What’s more, learning about birds is FUN! Needing to burn campers’ energy while providing valuable STEM education? We will come to YOU with customized programming and takeaways to captivate and inspire!

Desert Dwellers, for camp providers in the metro Phoenix area, is a distillation of the best and most effective activities to bring the wonders of Arizona’s wildlife directly to your classroom. The program can be readily tailored for a wide range of ages, abilities, group sizes, and shortened for time constraints. 

Winged Wonders, for camp providers north of Phoenix, is one of the best and most effective activities that bring bird study to life. Our educators come to YOU with customized programming and takeaways to engage and inspire. The program can be readily tailored to a wide range of ages and abilities and can serve up to 60 participants.
