Programs for Youth

Youth Corps Camping

Residential Camping Program for ages 16-18

Youth Corps Camping programs combine education, job skill training with outdoor adventure for ages 16 to 18. With the guidance of experienced field staff, youth crew members work on conservation, reforestation, and recreation projects, while developing leadership skills and learning how to work as a team. Crews camp in the field for their entire session, traveling to a new project each week. Participants gain a sense of pride that comes with hard work and a job well done, learn to become stewards of our public lands, and develop lasting friendships.
