AAS is a chapter of National Audubon Society (NAS) in
south-central Pennsylvania, with membership in Cumberland, Dauphin,
Northern York and Perry counties (as determined by NAS zip-codes). This
year we are offering TWO, full Hog Island Teen Camp scholarships
(excluding transportation to/from camp) in the amount of $1,395 each:
Audubon Hog Island site:
Maine Bird Studies for Teens, Sessions One and Two.
Check out our flyer:

Our annual ability to offer camp scholarships
depends upon chapter fundraising; donations always welcome.
Primary Eligibility for our Scholarship:
14-to-17-year-old girls and
boys in our chapter territory, with either a demonstrated passion for,
or an awakening, demonstrated curiosity about birds and/or natural
history/science, willing to "give back” from their Hog Island learning
experiences to our chapter and their local communities. First
consideration for this scholarship goes to teens living in our chapter
may also be considered - birding/wildlife volunteer and family
connections to our area strengthen non-resident applications. We can
also sometimes offer partial scholarships/financial support to strong
candidates outside our formal process, who demonstrate financial need.
Other Hog Island Scholarship Potential Eligibility:
If you would be
interested in applying to us for scholarships towards Educator Camp or
Family Camp, please contact us; those may become a possibility.
Educator Camp: for teachers, youth leaders…; Family
Camp: for at least
one adult relative/guardian + child aged 8 to 13 years (see Hog
Island Programs for details.)
Chapter-Territory Residents: Please
also see additional Youth and
Educator camp/continuing education scholarships for camps in
Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic region, on our website.
