The Kestrel Corps is a leadership development program that provides opportunities for high school students to develop their leadership skills. We are grateful to have young people so dedicated to our mission of raising awareness and appreciation for the natural world in our campers. We believe that this effort must continue for generations to come. In this spirit, our goal for the Kestrel Corps program is to provide diverse opportunities for each student to form meaningful connections with others and the natural world. Kestrels will work under the mentorship of the Kestrel Corps Coordinator and professional educators to develop their skills leading young people and sharing their passion for conservation. All Kestrels Corps members are required to attend an orientation.
