|The West Virginia Conservation District’s help promote three summer conservation camps. Most Conservation Districts offer scholarships to all three camps for students interested in attending.|
DEP Junior Conservation Camp
The Junior Conservation Camp is for youth between the ages of 11 and 14. It’s designed to help the first-time camper feel comfortable but is interesting enough to keep the more experienced camper interested and eager to begin another activity.

WV State Conservation Camp
West Virginia State Conservation Camp is held in June at Camp Caesar (Webster County). Campers must be 14 to 18 years of age as of January 1, to be eligible for this camp. West Virginia State Conservation Camp strives to increase the awareness of youth in West Virginia concerning the states natural resources and to instruct them in the wise use and management of those resources. Some of the classes offered at camp are Forest Management, Nature Trail, Water Conservation, Parks and Recreation and many more. Evening activates include Fishing, Game Demonstrations, Archery, Outdoor Cooking, Sports, and Campfires to name a few.
