ABA Young Birder Camps
Each year American Birding Association and its partners offer some fantastic events for young birders, enabling them to get out, learn more about birds, and go birding with others in their age group. Attending workshops, conferences, camps, and conventions gives these young people a unique opportunity to experience birding, learn about bird ecology and identification, and just have some fun with their peers.


  The ABA would like to thank Rockjumper Worldwide Birding Adventures, lead sponsor of the ABA Young Birder Camps!
