Vermont Conservation Camps Still Have Openings

Posted by admin On June - 17 - 2010

Youth hunters, or those interested in conservation, who are 12 to 14 years old have the chance to participate in one of the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department’s Green Mountain Conservation Camps.

According to the department, there is still plenty of room for campers this summer.

The camp, which runs one week, will be held at two different locations this year: Buck Lake in Woodbury and Lake Bomoseen in Castleton. There, campers will be taught about fish and wildlife conservation, forestry, fishing, gun safety, swimming and canoeing and much more.

Natural resource professionals will come to the camp throughout the week to educate the campers about various programs and to take them out for in-field projects.

Openings at the Lake Bomoseen Camp are available for girls for the week starting Aug. 15 and the boys camp will be the week starting July 5. Openings at Buck Lake are available the weeks starting July 11 for the girls and June 20, July 5, July 18, Aug. 8 and Aug. 15 for the boys.

The cost for the camp is $200 for the week, which includes food, lodging and use of equipment.

Anyone interested in attending should print the application from the Fish and Wildlife website and should remember to send in a check when mailing the form.
