Norman Bird Sanctuary Summer Camp will celebrate 60 years of hands-on learning in nature

Chris Electric

Norman Bird Sanctuary is proud to announce the 60th anniversary of their summer camp with registration opening on Friday, February 1st. Hundreds of campers will continue the tradition of nature exploration as they enjoy a unique blend of hiking, hands-on learning, animal encounters, games, and team building.

Campers explore Norman Bird Sanctuary’s 325-acre outdoor classroom and learn in small groups with professional Teacher Naturalists. Age-appropriate camp programs are available for grades Pre-K through 8th grade.

In addition to traditional nature camps, Norman Bird Sanctuary is once again offering the popular Coastal Camp held entirely at the sanctuary’s Coastal Education Center at Third Beach. Campers grades 2-8 explore tide pools, catch fish and conduct science experiments. Space is limited for these camps so early registration is highly encouraged.

Registration fees are discounted for Norman Bird Sanctuary members, but membership is not required. Limited scholarship funding is available based on family need.
Online registration will begin on Friday, February 1, 2019 at 10 a.m. For registration information and a complete list of camp themes and dates, please visit or contact Matt Schenck, Camp Director at 401-846-2577 ext.15 or by email at
