July 7–12, 2024

NOTE: This session is SOLD OUT. Waitlist informaiton found below.


Hog Island Audubon Camp is an ideal setting for exploring the photography of birds and nature. This camp brings together people of all photography skill levels who are enthusiastic about learning more about bird and nature photography. This experience invites you to learn, explore, and grow creative photography skills in a fun and supportive atmosphere.

The week will include sessions on birds and nature photography, led by Bruce Wunderlich, photo editor of Bird Watchers Digest, and Kathy Cubert, an accomplished award-winning nature photographer with a passion for wildlife and conservation. Walks on the mainland will take participants to various habitats and a great assortment of birds in breeding plumage. Campers will explore the island’s spruce forest, tide pools, and striking vistas—excursions to Eastern Egg Rock to photograph Atlantic Puffins and several species of terns are also on the agenda.

Did we mention Atlantic Puffins? If you have never photographed this beautiful bird, this week’s camp on Hog Island is a perfect opportunity to capture images of this unique species and many others.
