Conservation Camps

The West Virginia Conservation District’s help promote three summer conservation camps. Most Conservation Districts offer scholarships to all three camps for students interested in attending.

DEP Junior Conservation Camp

The Junior Conservation Camp is for youth between the ages of 11 and 14. It’s designed to help the first-time camper feel comfortable but is interesting enough to keep the more experienced camper interested and eager to begin another activity.

Junior Conservation Camp is held each year at Cedar Lakes in Ripley, WV for five days. Classes include forestry, recycling, first aid, soil conservation, hunter education, archery, wildlife and many others. Sports activities include basketball, kickball, volleyball, miniature golf, swimming and more.

June 15-19, 2020
