Kids for Conservation Summer Day Camp

All summer long parents can rely on our camps to get kids off the couch and into the woods. Carolina Raptor Center has camps for kids from 7-14 years old for during the summer so your kid can connect with nature. In 2017, we added an advanced Keeper Level II camp so your 13 or 14 year-old camper can take their skills to the next level. We've also partnered with Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation to add exciting animals (snakes, frogs and other herps) to Birds and Beasties, a camper and parent favorite!

Most of our camps are limited to 24 participants a week - except for the Keeper II camps deisgned for 8 lucky campers each week. Full payment for camp is due to reserve your spot.
