2019 VASWCD Youth Conservation Camp

July 7-13, 2019

Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA

If you are currently enrolled in grades 9 through 12 and are interested in learning more about our natural resources, and studying subjects such as aquatics, soils, forestry, watersheds and water quality, wildlife, and environmental problems, you should consider spending a week this summer at Youth Conservation Camp, July 8th – 14th. You will learn about natural resources through field trips and activities, make new friends with other high school students who share your interest in the environment, and enjoy many recreational activities in the area.

The Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District is looking for two interested students in Loudoun County (must be residents of the County) who would like to participate. The fee for camp, $550 will cover the students meals, lodging, activities and transportation while at camp. Students are responsible for obtaining their own means of transportation to and from Virginia Tech for the beginning and end of camp, plus personal items. The District is offering two partial scholarships of $400 each.  For highlights and application form.
