History will come alive in this exciting, new camp from VINS.  Travel back in time and learn about two ancient sporting traditions; falconry, the practice of hunting alongside a trained raptor, and archery.  Go behind the scenes at VINS with our raptor handlers.  Test your aim with a bow and arrow on the VINS Nature Camp archery range and see if you can hit the bullseye.*  Then, prepare yourself for an experience few adults could imagine, an up-close encounter with nature’s most perfect hunter: the Raptor!  On the last day, campers will be joined by real-life falconers from New England Falconry for an opportunity to handle a trained hawk.  Sport of Kings blends two of VINS Nature Camp’s most popular programs into this one-of-a-kind camp. 

 

*Highly supervised instruction provided by trained and certified staff following all national safety guidelines.
