ENVIRONMENTAL CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS

This year we are offering scholarships for two different summer camp experiences.

Coastal Maine Bird Studies for Teens, Ages 14-17 (June 14-19, 2015)

During this intensive 6-day, 5-night program on Hog Island, some of the country’s best known birders and ornithologists will lead sessions on field identification, bird song recognition, and conservation practices. This program includes the opportunity to observe Audubon’s seabird conservation field research in action, and is the only Hog Island program that lands participants on Eastern Egg Rock during the puffin breeding season.

Costal Maine Bird Studies is for teens with avid interest in the outdoors and birds. Limit of 16 participants per session. The scholarship includes all meals, housing, instruction and boat trips. However, teens must arrange for transportation to and from the Audubon dock in Bremen, ME at the start and end of the session. Participants may be picked up and dropped off at the Portland Airport by Audubon staff for an additional $100.

This program requires physical and emotional maturity and will be awarded based on the information provided on the attached application.

Family Camp Scholarship for Eligible Adult and Child

Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society is offering a full scholarship for a child aged 8–12 and an accompanying adult family member to attend an environmental camp especially designed for families on Hog Island off the coast of Maine.

The session, running from August 11 through August 16, 2015, provides a unique opportunity for family members to enjoy nature together. Activities include cruising Muscongus Bay to see seabirds and seals; examining aquatic insects, fish, amphibians, mushrooms, and wildflowers; and exploring the life of tide pools. In the evenings, there are night hikes, campfire programs, and star gazing. Comfortable lodging on the island and delicious food add to the magical experience.
