For 2021, the Virgina Academy of Natural Resources online camp is replacing Youth Conservation Camp.

The Virginia Academy of Natural Resources is a virtual opportunity being offered this year for the safety of all for current 8th – 12th graders.  Campers will attend live presentations in the morning and have exploration assignments in the afternoon. Campers will learn about Aquatics, Forestry, Soils, and Wildlife. Campers will also participate in a Mock Envirothon.

The VANR starts Monday July 12th- Friday July 16th, 2021.  A $25 fee is requested from the student after they have been accepted into the virtual camp. More information will be sent to campers once they are accepted. Applications are being accepted until May 15th, 2021.
