I was sent this notice with the suggestion that I might want to post it to CTBirds.  Normally I decline requests to post for others, but this one looked interesting enough I thought I should make an exception.  I know nothing about it except what was sent to me and is copied below.  I take no responsibility for anything about it, and my posting here should not be considered an endorsement by me or by the COA.

But it does sound cool.

The Audubon Camp in Maine is located on 330-acre Hog Island in southern Maine.  The programs are managed by Project Puffin, known for bringing Atlantic Puffins back to historic nesting sites in Maine.  All June programs include a boat trip to see the puffin colonies, as well as a diversity of birding trips, workshops and evening presentations by well-known ornithologists and birding authors. Participants live in modernized (but rustic) cabins on Hog Island.  The cost of the programs is $995, which includes food, lodging and all program activities, and scholarships are $500 each.
