Summer Camps

Platte River Safari & Flying Higher

Due to construction, Rowe Sanctuary will not be offering Summer Camps in 2024. We’re sorry for the inconvenience. We plan on having camps starting in the summer of 2025. See below for information about past Summer Camp opportunities.


Platte River Safari

Grades 2-5

Platte River Safari Camp is a nature day camp where children can learn about the Platte River and other natural areas in at Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary. Campers take part in a variety of hands-on activities that include natural and physical science, language arts, history, agriculture, music and art, while having fun. Campers participate in activities not normally offered during the school year like getting wet and muddy – all for the sake of learning!

Platte River Safari Camp is for any student currently in grades 2 through 5 for the current school year. 

Flying Higher

Grades 6-8
Flying Higher is a hands-on, ecology camp geared for middle school students. This camp will take campers into the realm of scientific surveys and identification with a huge dose of fun.

We share the belief that when children spend quality time outside it can have a lasting, positive impact on their personal lives and the future of our great natural heritage

Peer Leaders

Peer Leader Interns will focus on gaining the skills necessary to lead small groups of students through conservation education summer camp programs, as well as gain experience implementing lesson plans in an outdoor setting. Audubon Nebraska’s Peer Leader Internship is a challenging, highly rewarding experience for anyone considering a career in environmental or conservation education.
