Summer Camps

National Aviary Summer Camps are unlike any other field trip, classroom or camp!

Journey through a tropical jungle, feed our colony of African penguins, investigate veterinary science, discover falconry.  National Aviary Summer Camps enable children and teens to explore the wild world and their place in it—both indoors and out!

National Aviary Summer Camps provide opportunities unlike any other field trip, classroom or camp.  Campers have access to the National Aviary’s world-class exhibits, including the historic Tropical Forest and Wetlands, the Helen M. Schmidt TheaterTM, Sky Deck, Canary’s Call, and many behind-the-scenes spaces not accessible to the public.  Children can interact with favorite birds, like penguins, toucans and parrots.  And our location within Allegheny Commons Park is perfect for outdoor nature study and play.
