Come spend a week with the WV State Conservation Camp and explore the natural world and begin to answer these questions and others concerning West Virginia’s natural resources. During a fun week at camp, you will interact with natural resource professionals, explore potential career opportunities, learn new skills and make lifelong friends from all across West Virginia!
A proud tradition since 1941, WV State Conservation Camp continues to introduce young adults to their natural resources and to the wise use and management of those resources. Come, join in this legacy and let Conservation Camp open the door to the outdoors for you!
The 2014 WV State Conservation Camp will be using the eventbrite registration system for camp this year. Click on the Green Button above to start the process. The registration system should be used for all campers including those that have scholarships from agencies and organizations around the state.
If you are intersted in a scholarship you will need to contact Alan Miller by phone to get matched up with one of our scholarship providers. We will do our best to match campers with scholarship sponsors that are willing to fund campers from their area or based on their other selection criteria.
Scholarship recipients should have a "promotional code" that will remove the registration fees. If you do not know your scholarship code, please contact camp chairman Ben Spong.
Parents or other sponsors wanting to register a camper can pay camp fees directly on the website using a credit card or a check.
