New birds, new friends, new experiences

Each year the American Birding Association and its partners offer some fantastic events for young birders, enabling them to get out, discover 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 fun with their peers.

Registration for ABA camps will open this fall. Join the 2024 ABA Camps notifications email group by completing the camp interest form.
