Forestry and Wildlife Camp

Do you have a child who is interested in Wildlife Conservation or Forestry?  Maybe they just enjoy being outside and learning about nature? Or maybe they haven’t had an opportunity to explore the outdoors and all it has to offer. A weekend at 4-H Forestry – Wildlife Conservation Camp might help them decide on a career, or introduce them to college opportunities they didn’t even know exist!

Youth ages 12 – 18 from across Ohio are invited to attend this unique camp held at the Elizabeth L. Evans Outdoor Education Center/Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson, Ohio. The camp’s location set, in the rocky hills of Southern Ohio, allows campers to explore the beautiful sandstone gorges, visit the natural waterfalls and see the ancient hemlock that make up the forest.  While they are at the camp, they will also learn about the Native Americans who once lived in and around the numerus rock shelters that can be found on the 100+ acre property. The camp is being planned and implemented by OSU Extension professionals, partnering with staff from Hocking College, Soil and Water Conservation and Central State University. Both 4-H and non-4-H youth are invited to attend.
