For nearly 25 years, CCEEC has been
offering a week-long, overnight camping experience for young people
interested in the outdoors. Conservation Camp is held in mid-August,
and is open to children ages 8 through 12 (older and younger children
are admitted under certain circumstances).
For lack of overnight facilities at
CCEEC, the camp is held at Hickory Run State Park, and a more beautiful
setting could not be had.
Campers enjoy whitewater rafting,
hikes, scientific explorations, games and crafts. They’re also treated
to three healthy, home-made meals daily, and one evening campfire
complete with hot dogs and smores. Lifelong friends are made at
Conservation Camp, where the thrill of your first extended stay away
from home is a positive and memorable one.
