Summer in Idaho means camps for kids.
If you are 10 to 12 years old and want to learn outdoor skills, become certified in hunter education and experience a wide variety of other fun, outdoor activities, consider attending the Youth Conservation Camp, August 12 -16, at Trinity Pines Camp and Conference Center in Cascade.
Campers participate in hands-on learning activities in firearm safety and shooting, wildlife conservation and identification, orienteering and challenge courses, fishing techniques, archery fundamentals, introduction to trapping, float the Payette River, and much more in an attractive outdoor setting.
Registration is first come first serve to the first 30 youth. Cost per camper is $255.00, which includes food, lodging and equipment for the week.
To learn more or to register, visit the Idaho Conservation Officer Association website at http://www.icoaonline.org, or contact your nearest Idaho Fish and Game office.
Idaho’s Youth Conservation Camp is unique because it is sponsored and directed by the Idaho Conservation Officer’s Association and Idaho Department of Fish and Game – the same people who manage Idaho’s fish and wildlife. Conservation officers and biologists direct the camp and lead the classroom and field learning activities.
The overall goal is to help young people learn about and cultivate a respect for Idaho’s natural resources and the people who work to protect, preserve, and perpetuate those resources.
