Youth Conservation Camp (Small)


 Youth Conservation Camp applications are now available at the Tidewater Soil and Water Conservation District for Gloucester, Middlesex, and Mathews students that are in the 9th -12th grade during the 2023-2024 school year. Youth Conservation Camp is a weeklong camp that is sponsored by the VA Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts for a week of learning about Virginia’s natural resources from conservation professionals and faculty from Virginia Tech. Most of the instruction is hands-on and outdoors. Two students are chosen by Tidewater SWCD to attend this camp at Virginia Tech each year. Camp admission, meals and lodging during the camp (a $550.00 value) are provided by Tidewater SWCD. Transportation to and from camp is the sole responsibility of the camper. While at camp students will bunk in the college dorms and be involved in many activities and educational events.
