Every year, Three Rivers SWCD sponsors a student to attend Youth Conservation Camp in Blacksburg, VA on the Virginia Tech campus. The camp takes place in mid-July and is designed to enlighten and expand the student’s knowledge of natural resource conservation. The camp consists of lake ecology, canoeing the New River, hiking the Cascades, and touring Virginia Tech’s agriculture research farm.
Applicants must be in 9th-12th grades, and those who have attended in previous years are not eligible to attend. Attendees are responsible for transportation to and from camp.
For more information, visit www.vaswcd.org/conservation-camp or call our office at (804)443-4027 for an application. Tentative dates for the camp in 2024 are July 13th-20th, but are subject to change.
