Enrollment for West Virginia's Conservation Camp starts now

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- It's time for teenagers to register for this summer's West Virginia State Conservation Camp.

The weeklong event combines outdoor recreation with education about environmental issues and conservation practices.

It's set for June 10-15 at Camp Caesar in Webster County and is for teens ages 14 to 19. Those who sign up by June 1 will get priority.

The camp costs $185, but scholarships covering all or part of that fee are available for those who qualify. They're sponsored by garden clubs, conservation districts, hunting or fishing clubs, and other groups.

Campers will learn about fish and wildlife management, forest protection, forest products, law enforcement and more.

In the afternoons, they can enjoy activities including trap shooting, archery, rowing, outdoor cooking, fishing, rifle marksmanship and rappelling.
