Berry Burcher Audubon Scholarship

Northeast PA Audubon Society is offering a full scholarship to family camp at Hog Island in Maine. Family camp is designed for families with children ages 8-13 (children must be in this age range at the time of the camp). The NEPA Audubon scholarship is for one child and one related adult (parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles are welcome). Either the adult or the child must be a resident of Lackawanna, Wayne, Susquehanna or northern Pike Counties. This scholarship covers the costs of camp programs, lodging and meals. Scholarship recipients must arrange for transportation to and from the Audubon Dock in Bremen, ME at the start and finish of this session. The camp program will take place from August 4, 2024 through August 9, 2024. 

Hog Island’s Family Camp provides a wonderful opportunity for families to enjoy nature together. The pristine environment on Hog Island offers a wide variety of habitats for nature study. Campers cruise Muscongus Bay in search of seabirds and seals. They examine aquatic insects and amphibians in a freshwater pond, look for mushrooms and wildflowers in the forest, and search for fish and marine invertebrates along the intertidal zone. Evening programs include night hikes and stargazing. Each day begins with an optional early morning bird walk and ends with a family campfire program filled with songs, stories, and skits. We invite you to experience an educational family adventure you will never forget. For additional information about the camp experience visit http://hogisland.audubon.org 

This scholarship will be awarded based on the information provided on the application. Application deadline is April 15, 2024. For more information about the scholarship or application process please contact NEPA Audubon at (570) 253-9250 or audubonworks@gmail.com
