BTO Bird Camps 2024

Category: Days Out

We are proud to be hosting Bird Camps in all four countries again in 2024!

BTO Youth will be organising Bird Camps in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and working in partnership with our friends at SOC for a fourth camp in Scotland. Please read all the information here carefully before applying.

The four camps are:

  • Northern Ireland, Co Tyrone, 24–26 May
  • Scotland, Lothian, 31 May–2 June (apply on the SOC website)
  • England, Lake District, 28–30 June
  • Wales, Pembrokeshire, 19–21 July


The BTO Bird Camps 2024 are open for young people in secondary school or college at the time of camp, as long as you are under 18 during the camp. This typically means anyone aged 11–17.

Note that the Scotland camp is open for young people aged 10–16.


BTO Bird Camps are completely free of charge, to make them accessible to as many young people as possible. If you are financially able to do so, any contributions made will help us to keep running our camps for free in future.

Please donate to our BTO Youth Appeal. Thank you.


We understand that equipment like binoculars can be expensive. To make sure everyone can enjoy the camp, we’ll have binoculars you can borrow and we’ll bring scopes for everyone to use; just tick the option on the form if you want to borrow a pair of binoculars.

You can also apply for our Equipment Donation Scheme. If you do, let us know which camp you’re planning to attend.
