Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA
For 40 years, the Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts has sponsored a week long summer conservation camp for Virginia high school students (currently enrolled in grades 9-12) on the campus of Virginia Tech. The program brings together about 70 interested students for a week of learning about Virginia’s natural resources from conservation professionals and faculty from Virginia Tech. Most of the instruction is hands-on and outdoors.
Scholarship funding to cover the registration fee may be available from your local Soil & Water Conservation District. Youth Conservation Camp is open to all Virginia students enrolled in High School for the current year. See camp pictures and testimonials from students on the VASWCD Facebook page. Contact Lindy Durham at Henricopolis Soil & Water Conservation District (501-5175 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions or for additional camp information.
