Conservation-careers summer camp offered


February 9, 2012

PENNSYLVANIA — Young people interested in pursuing environmental careers are invited to apply by April 1 for the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ summer residential camp.
The six-day camp will begin Sunday, July 8, at Kirby Episcopal House and Chapel, Glen Summit, about 10 miles south of Wilkes-Barre.

The free camp will introduce 20 to 25 students in grades 10 to 12 to conservation and environmental careers, and encourage their pursuit. From wildlife conservation projects and stream sampling, to forestry skills, activities will offer students a hands-on, team-building experience outdoors.

Participants are exposed to a wide range of career experiences, including water quality assessments, geology field studies and overnight camping experiences.
