Does the camp have insurance?

Insurance – The WV State Conservation Camp has limited insurance in that campers without insurance will be covered. Those with insurance are expected to use their own and the camp insurance will cover any additional funds if needed.

How do I get to Camp?

Campers are responsible to arrange their own transportation to and from Camp Caesar. In some cases, a sponsoring agency may be able to assist in arranging transportation.  

How much does camp cost?

The cost for each camper is two hundred dollars ($200.00) and is typically provided the community sponsors, parents, or other individuals. 

These funds provide food, lodging and insurance, which covers campers from the time of departure from their place of residence until they return home at the close of camp.

Checks should be made payable to WV State Conservation Camp.  

What ages can come to Conservation Camp?

Young men and women at least 14 and not yet 18 (as of the start of camp) are welcome to sign up for camp

If you do not want us to use photographs or other recordings of your child, please attach a note, with your signature and date, stating that “photographs or recordings of my child are not to be used in promoting the camp program.”
