Get Your Kids Outside!
How can you foster a love for the natural world that will last a lifetime? By sending a child to a DEC camp for a week! Campers learn about the environment through hands-on, outdoor activities and build friendships that last forever. Contact with environmental professionals throughout the week enriches the learning and encourages career exploration.
Four camps, Colby (Northern Adirondacks), Pack Forest (Southern Adirondacks), DeBruce (Catskills) and Rushford (Western NY), host youth 12 to 14 years old. DEC also offers week-long Ecology Workshops for teens 15 to 17 years old at Pack Forest and Rushford.
Complete information about the camps is available at http://www.dec.ny.gov/education/29.html. We begin accepting applications postmarked no earlier than February 6 for campers sponsored by an organization and February 27 for campers whose parents pay the $325 fee. Application forms are available on the website or by calling DEC Camps
