Calling all avian enthusiasts, Science of Amazing Raptors (SOAR) Camp, is the perfect, unique experience for you. Join VINS’ expert educators and bird trainers for an opportunity to experience what few adults could imagine, an up-close encounter with nature’s most perfect hunter: the Raptor! Come spend the week at VINS learning what makes raptors such excellent hunters and discover the secrets of raptor training. Participants will view private bird programs, learn fun facts through games and crafts, get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at VINS’ bird rehabilitation facility and even help care for our birds. On the last day, campers can get their picture taken next to a raptor on the glove of one of our trained staff. Get ready for an unforgettable week with eagles, owls, hawks, falcons, and so much more. This VINS specialty camp is a rare opportunity, and spaces fill quickly..
