I took my granddaughters (age 8) and they learned so much and loved every minute of the experience. Both want to go back for the upcoming day camp. The staff was wonderful and knowledgeable. They took extra time with the smaller children contributing to their experience. I would highly recommend this to everyone.

I enjoyed the whole class but the hands on experience with the hawks was the best!

The unusual opportunity to learn about and be close to a bird of prey. Having a hawk alight on my glove was a real thrill.

Apr 19, 2015 Kate CA, United States

The entire experience was amazing. Being up close and personal with these amazing birds of prey was a encounter that I'll remember for a very long time.

The falconers who delivered the presentation were fantastic (I was so enthralled with the birds, I don't remember the ladies names!) and gave so much information, from the history of falconry to facts about the birds... they love their job and their passion for the birds shows.

Having the hawk fly to my arm.

The knowledge of the trainers and the high level of safety being so close to these amazing birds
