Michigan is home to some amazing animals and campers will learn to identify them using binoculars, tracks, signs left behind (scat-what's that?), animal homes and even iPads/iPhones. If your camper has an iPhone, you can download the app called iBird Midwest. On the iPad it's called iBird Yard+Guide to Birds. Having these apps will help your student use today's technology to learn how to identify birds by sound as well as coloration. These apps are not necessary for camp - just a suggestion to help campers learn. iPads and iPhones will be used on the last day of camp, and used ONLY for learning.
