If you are 14-18 years old and would like to attend a conservation camp similar to the Junior Conservation Camp offered by the YEP, the West Virginia State Conservation Camp at Camp Caesar in Webster County is probably what you're looking for. Participants spend the mornings learning about the state's natural resources in a block-schedule format and enjoy afternoon activities such as archery, boating, rifle marksmanship, fishing and outdoor cooking. This year's camp is June 12-16. For more information go to: www.wvconservationcamp.com
