Summer Conservation Camp

This 5-day camp will be July 8-12 from 8:00am-12:00pm each day. The camp is for kids ages 9-14. We will provide a mid-morning snack each day. The focus of the camp is to learn about the following natural resources and how to protect them: water, soil, agricultural land, and wildlife.
