Conservation Day Camp Programs
Thursday, June 24, 2021

This year's camp in Steuben County is scheduled for July 13 at Pokagon State Park. The camp will offer unique hands-on learning experiences for young individuals who enjoy the outdoors. Birds of Pokagon will be the focus. In addition, attendees will participate in an arts and crafts project, games and end the day with a special story-telling adventure. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

LaGrange County will be held on June 24 at the ParGil Learning Center. Activities will include a mini-envirothon (soils, wildlife, aquatics) combined with fire building and fire safety. Campers will cook lunch over the fire, make homemade ice cream, and play ecology games as well.

The August 3 camp will be held at Camp Whitley near Columbia City. This session will introduce conservation campers to shooting sports. Indiana Conservation Officers will be on hand to teach firearm safety, and campers will get to try their hand at clay pigeon target shooting. Campers will also be instructed in archery. The day will end with swimming at Troy-Cedar Lake.

These day camps are a good opportunity for kids to get outside to enjoy our beautiful natural resources while helping to keep their minds and bodies active.

Camps are open to kids ages 9-13. The cost to participate in each camp is $10.00/person and includes all materials, snacks, and lunch. Each camp runs from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Registrations are currently being accepted for both camps. Please register by Tuesday, June 22 for both the LaGrange County camp and the Steuben County camp at Pokagon. The registration deadline for the Whitley County camp is Friday, July 23.
