DEC Summer Camps

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation runs summer camps for kids 11-17 years old.

DEC camps combine environmental education, sportsman education and outdoor fun.

RegistrationΒ for DEC’s four summer environmental education camps begins January 27, 2016 at 10 AM.

What could be better than enjoying the outdoors in the Adirondacks, southern Catskills or Western New York?

Kids can attend a fun-filled week at camp where they learn about the environment and engage in various outdoor activities such as shooting sports, fishing, hiking and canoeing. Campers can even take Hunter Education or Bowhunter Education courses during their stay to qualify for their sporting license.

Do you know a kid interested in spending time outdoors this summer? For only $350, a week at camp will become a lifetime of memories.

Camper registration begins January 27, 2016 at 10 AM.
