Youth Conservation Camp

Each year Three Rivers SWCD sponsors a student to attend Youth Conservation Camp. The camp takes place in Blacksburg, VA on the Virginia Tech campus in mid-July.

The camp is designed to enlighten and expand the student’s knowledge of natural resource conservation. The emphasis of camp is outdoor learning and has minimum classroom work. Conservation camp consists of lake ecology, canoeing the New River, hiking the Cascades, and touring Virginia Tech’s agriculture research farm.

Participants must be in grades 9 through 12 and those who have attended in previous years are not eligible to attend! Attendees are responsible for transportation to and from camp.

Lindsey Bartos, from Three Rivers SWCD, enjoys her time spent learning about macroinvertebrates during the lake ecology segment of Youth Conservation Camp.
