South Dakota Youth Conservation Camp


June 2nd to the 8th, 2013

The High Plains Wildlife Association of Pierre/Ft. Pierre has limited openings available for the 2013 South Dakota Youth Conservation Camp at the Bob Marshall Camp in the Black Hills near Custer, SD. This camp is organized and administered by the South Dakota Wildlife Federation. Boys and Girls presently in the 8th, 9th and 10th grades who are potential leaders and are interested in conservation are eligible to apply.

The goal of the camp is to take high school students from throughout the state of South Dakota and introduce them to conservation principles. The camp is a great opportunity for students who are interested in conservation as a particular career, or just recreation. The main topics of the camp are conservation and environment issues, game management, forestry, and fisheries along with fishing and shooting skills. This is primarily a learning cap, but also a hands-on fun camp for anyone who enjoys wildlife and the out-of-doors. The format is active, the program includes hands-on instruction, and delegates are allowed to choose subjects that most interest them. There is free time everyday.

The camp will be held from June 2nd to the 8th. The High Plains Wildlife Association will provide the full camp fee of $300 (covering room, board and transportation). Applications should be made by May 1, 2013.

For applications and more information, contact John Simpson at 224-7054.
