Come spend a week with the WV State Conservation Camp and explore the natural world and begin to answer the many questions 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!

Calendar 0As we get ready for SPRING -- Mark your calendars for the beginning of summer with the dates for 2017 Conservation Camp June 12th - 16th. Will we see you there?

 

 

 

 

Registration for the 2017 WV State Conservation Camp is still mostly handled offline as there is a number of manual activities we do behind the scenes to match campers and sponsorships.

However, our online form will be used to make things easier for campers and everyone else involved! 

Easy 3 steps to complete registration:

  1. Fill out the online registration form or contact our registration coordinator Alan Miller by mail or phone.  Note that Alan is retired and not always available to answer the phone, so please leave a clear message and he will return your call as quickly as possible.
  2. You will be contacted by the camp by phone or mail with potential sponsor information, the registration form, health history form, and camp rules and regulations -- These will need to be filled out and returned to camp.
  3. The camp fees of $185 will be required to be sent in or if camper is being sponsored by an organization, the proper organization will be noted and those camp fees will be charged to the organization.

That's it!  Once these are done, we'll be waiting to see you on Monday the 12th of June at 1:00PM!   We're all excited for a great session!
