ABA Summer Young Birders Camp, at Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware. For more info contact Bill Stewart at 800.850.2473 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
This new ABA camp will be based at stunning Cape Henlopen State Park in historic Lewes, Delaware, only minutes away from two major National Wildlife Refuges and a short ride from the northernmost cypress swamp in North America, brimming with Prothonotary and Worm-eating Warblers, Red-headed Woodpeckers and nightjars! Did you ask for shorebirds? Well, Camp Avocet will be stacked full of migrant such as dowitchers, Black-necked Stilt, Semipalmated, Western and Least Sandpipers, and of course American Avocets numbering in the hundreds.
Of course at this hotspot there’s always a chance of rarity! Due to the grand diversity of southern Delaware’s bird-rich habitats, over 150 species of birds will be seen and studied during this seven-day camp extravaganza. As an added bonus via the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, campers will have the opportunity to bird world-famous Cape May and visit Cape May Point, Higbee’s Beach and the Meadows in search of warblers, shorebirds, gulls, terns and more! Campers will be housed and fed in the modern Biden Environmental Center only moments away from the Atlantic Ocean and the Delaware Bay. The Piping Plovers, Black Skimmers, American Oystercatchers and Royal Terns accentuate the breath-taking sunset off of Cape Henlopen Point, surely providing memories that shall last a lifetime.
