Youth Conservation Camp available to teens
Updated Tues., 5/22 – The WI Land and Water Conservation Association, along with the Iron and Vilas County Land & Water Conservation Departments have teamed up with Trees for Tomorrow to offer the 2012 Youth Conservation Camp.
This camp will be held June 12-15 at Trees for Tomorrow in Eagle River. The program is designed for students entering Grades 9-11, (under age 18) who are interested in natural resource management careers and/or have an interest in the outdoors. Camp will challenge students in conservation problem-solving, a hands-on habitat restoration project, a wilderness canoe trip and more.
Cost to attend this three-day camp experience is $175 (if registered by May 25) and includes meals, lodging, program and a T-shirt. The Oneida County Conservation and UW-EX Education Committee will provide a scholarship to cover the cost of attendance for one youth to attend camp. Travel arrangements and mileage costs are the student’s responsibility.
Students interested in applying for a scholarship should call the Oneida County Land and Water Conservation Department at (715) 369-7835, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for registration information and scholarship application. Information is also available online at oneida.uwex.edu. The deadline for applications is May 25. The Oneida County Conservation and UW-EX Education Committee will make the final selection no later than June 1. Students who have not attended the camp before will be given preference.
