Downeast Audubon will again be offering fully paid scholarships to several nature camps this summer.
- Acadia Institute of Oceanography camps for kids ages 10 to 12 (introductory), 12-15 (intermediate) and 15-19 (advanced).
- National Audubon Society’s Hog Island “Mountains to Sea Birding for Teens,” for ages 14 to 17.
- National Audubon Society’s Hog Island “Sharing Nature: An Educator’s Week,” aimed at K-12 teachers and other educators.
- Huntsman Marine “Introduction to Marine Mammals and Seabirds” for kids ages 15-18.
In order to apply for a scholarship, all applicants are required to write a short essay about why they want to go to camp and how they might use what they learn. Kids need to also submit a teacher recommendation, telling us why we should send her or him to camp. All applicants must be Hancock County residents or teach in Hancock County.
The deadline is March 1, but early applications will be accepted. If you know anyone who would be perfect for any of these opportunities, let them or their parents know. For information: 326-4909 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To download an application, go to www.downeastaudubon.org
