Ohio Forestry and Wildlife Conservation Camp



The Lake County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) is offering a full scholarship to Camp Canopy (formerly Ohio Forestry and Wildlife Conservation Camp) to a qualified Lake County high school student.

The Ohio Forestry Association organizes this event which is held annually at Camp Muskingum in Carroll County. This year’s camp will run from June 10-15, 2018.  The camp is designed for high school students, ages 15-18. Completion of the eighth grade is a requirement. Students with an interest in natural resource conservation are strongly encouraged to apply. The sessions include hands-on instruction on tree and wildlife identification, forest management for timber and wildlife and stream monitoring.  Students are taught by camp staff and professional foresters. Ample free time is available for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, volleyball and other outdoor recreation. The cost of this camp is $375 per student. Lake SWCD will pay the full camp fee, for one Lake County resident.
Lake SWCD must receive the student’s scholarship application, camp registration form, and one (1) letter of recommendation from a teacher by April 16th, 2018. Lake County Soil & Water Conservation District will notify each applicant of their status by May 4th.
