Description


Go Wild! Youth for Conservation is a leadership workshop for youth ages 13 – 17. Youth will be introduced to fish & wildlife conservation, ecology, and sustainability. Go Wild aims to inspire an interest in environmental stewardship and empower youth to take on a leadership role in their communities. Participants will leave with the skills and knowledge to be responsible in the environment and become involved in conservation projects. This is a perfect fit for youth who enjoy the outdoors and want to gain leadership skills.


This camp is filled with fun activities designed to engage, educate, and inspire youth in conservation initiatives and leadership. The valuable experiences gained from camp will leave a lasting impact both in personal development and as change-makers in the community.

Some of the activities include:

  • Building a working wind turbine prototype
  • Orienteering
  • Range Day (archery, cowboy action, etc.)
  • Fire and shelter building
  • Fishing
  • Restoration project
  • Leadership exercises

A more detailed scheduled will be included in a Parent Handbook, which will be sent via email a few business days after registration. The Parent Handbook provides an overview of Camp logistics such as where campers must be dropped off and picked up, forms, etc.


In addition, we are pleased to offer the CORE (Conservation and Outdoor Recreation Education) Program and Minor's Firearms License for those who wish to learn the foundations of firearm safety and hunting during the first three days of camp. Participants will learn about conservation, hunting ethics/regulations, animal identification, first aid, and survival.


Upon passing a written and practical firearm handling exam, participants will receive certification for CORE and a Minor's Firearms License, which upon turning 18 years of age, turns into a Possession and Acquisition License (PAL). This certification is required to obtain a Fish and Wildlife ID (FWID) and hunting license once the participant turns 18 years old.

Price: $50 or $200 (with CORE and Minor's Firearms License certification)

Ages: 13 – 17

Dates: Saturday, August 5th to Sunday, August 13th, 2017
