Adventure Camp Winner!

How would YOU like to spend a week of your summer vacation waking up at 5:30 every morning? Last summer, 11-year-old Thomas Seabourn did just that—and loved it!

Thomas was the winner of the 2013 Craig Tufts Educational Scholarship. Each year the scholarship sends the winner and one adult family member to the Family Nature Summit. The summit is a week-long outdoor-education camp where kids hike and play with their families while learning about nature from wildlife experts. Last year's summit was in Bar Harbor, Maine. 

Thomas lives in Idaho, so he was excited to spend a week along the rocky coast of Maine. So excited, in fact, that he chose to wake up extra-early each morning to explore tide pools and go birdwatching.

Birds are a big part of Thomas's life. His winning essay described how he helps protect wild birds—especially kestrels—back home. So the trip to Maine gave him the chance to check out a whole new bunch of birds, including cormorants and petrels. "Most of the birds on the East Coast don't show up in the western mountains where I live," he says. "It was great to see all the new birds."

 

BE THE NEXT ADVENTURE WINNER!

This summer's Family Nature Summit will be on California's Monterey Peninsula. For more information on the Craig Tufts Educational Fund and to apply for this year's scholarship, visit familysummits.org/craigtufts.php. Applications are due by March 28, 2014. Craig Tufts was the chief naturalist at National Wildlife Federation, the group that publishes Ranger Rick
