Winter Trail Blazers - February 20 - 23, 2024

Let’s go on a weeklong adventure as we travel through the Refuge exploring the wildlife that is all around us! Campers will discover and investigate the secrets of our forest and streams as we learn more about Hirundo and what inhabits the space. With our binoculars in hand we’ll look for hidden messages, build a giant bird’s nest, play icy games and so much more!

Attendees will explore, discover, and take in new skills while having fun and learning more about Maine’s wildlife.

Your Outdoor Adventure Awaits!

Each day campers will investigate a new topic!

A packing list will be provided upon registration. Campers should dress warmly and be prepared to spend a large portion of the day outside.

Thursday: Animals Both Big + Small

Campers will grab their binoculars and magnifying glasses as we travel through Hirundo, looking for animals both big and small. We’ll build a giant bird’s nest and learn more about where all of the animals go and live during Maine’s chillier months. 

Tuesday: Investigate our Pond, Forest, + Stream

Test out your detective skills as we explore the Refuge and look for some of our hidden treasures located on the trails. We’ll learn how to navigate and build our own maps, while thinking about the secret messages we can uncover during the camp day!

Friday: Snow Science + Icy Fun

Let’s create and experiment with snow! Campers will investigate the science behind snow, while looking closely at snowflake shapes and creating their own snowy escape!

Wednesday: Become a Habitat Tracker!

Let’s go on a sightseeing adventure, searching for animal tracks, while investigating some of the creatures that make Hirundo their home.
