Two conservation summer camp opportunities are available for middle and high school students this summer in northern Wisconsin.
The camps are designed to provide fun outdoor experiences that foster an appreciation for nature and introduce youth to opportunities in natural resources and conservation careers.
The Douglas County Land & Water Conservation Department has scholarships available for
Douglas County students to attend these camps.
