Birds NZ Youth Camp 2017

During April 2017, we hosted the Birds New Zealand Youth Camp. 12 ‘Young Birders’ and 8 volunteers stayed for 4 nights to explore the abundant native bird species that make Russell- Orongo Bay Holiday Park and the surrounding areas their home.

We received some great feedback about their stay:

Russell-Orongo Bay Holiday Park was a perfect venue for the camp. The camp was a great jump-off spot for Urupukapuka and we had presentations from Russell based DoC and Birder enthusiasts. Russell- Orongo Bay Holiday Park volunteered the accommodation. Since Don and Angela are Birds New Zealand members and enthusiastic birders, and they have made the Holiday Park very bird friendly, it was not surprising that there were plenty of interesting birds to see on site, including North Island Brown Kiwi, Weka and Pateke. One morning everyone was up at 6am to go birding before breakfast. By the end of that day they had a list of 55 species.”
