Camp Colorado is back with two sessions for 2018! Join us as we explore Colorado from grassland to glaciers. From the shortgrass prairie of northeastern Colorado to the aspen groves and alpine tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, Camp Colorado has it all!

We’ll be based out of the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, bordering the majestic Rocky Mountain National Park.

Campers will have 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 Colorado. An amazing diversity of ecosystems lie within a few hours drive of Estes Park, giving campers the chance to experience Colorado’s varied life zones and birds.

Expert staff from the ABA and skilled guest instructors will lead field trips in search of species such as White-tailed Ptarmigan, Clark’s Nutcracker, MacGillivray’s Warbler, Brown-capped Rosy Finch, Williamson’s Sapsucker, Burrowing Owl, McCown’s Longspur, and Cassin’s Sparrow, to name just a few. Afternoons and evenings we’ll have hands-on workshops to learn about field journaling, photography, careers in bird conservation, and much more.

Join us for an unforgettable week of bird camp in the Colorado Rockies!
