About the Camp


This year's OFO's Alan Wormington Memorial Camp for teen birders and naturalists will take place from Sunday, July 3 to Sunday, July 10. Campers must be 13 years old at the time of the camp.


Led by professional scientists and guides, the camp is designed to give campers an in-depth experience of the birds, moths, dragonflies, snakes, mushrooms and ecology of the park. Campers will participate in the Ontario Breeding Bird Atlas, contributing their finding to the atlas database. Campers will also have an opportunity to learn from the active researchers at the station and practice their wildlife photography skills.

  • July 3 - 6: Stay at the WRS

Accommodation


Campers will stay at the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station in the heart of the park. Situated beside a small private lake in an untouched forest, the station is a hub for wildlife researchers and a perfect base for exploring the Algonquin Park natural environment.
