NYSDEC Summer Conservation Camps


This past summer we sent 7 kids to these incredible camps, and have already voted to send another 7 this year. Kids must be 11 – 13 years old. If any kids out there would like to go next summer, please contact Ryan Demick at 315-486-2210 to get their name on the list ASAP. Registration for the camps and weeks is first come-first serve and begins in January, so don’t wait! We ask that if you put your name on the list that you 100% plan on going. The cost of the camp is nonrefundable to the club. If for some reason they don’t go at the last minute, then we lose our money and another kid that could have gone loses their chance to go to camp.
