Forestry Youth Camp

Mon, June 3, 2019

Oklahoma Forestry Services invites girls and boys between the ages of 13 to 15 to apply for its annual Oklahoma Forestry Camp, which will be held June 3-8 at Beavers Bend State Park in southeast Oklahoma.

In addition to swimming, canoeing, fishing and hiking, campers will also participate in hands-on forest management and stream ecology learning activities with natural resource professionals. These professionals, who represent organizations such as Oklahoma Forestry Services, Oklahoma Dept. of Wildlife Conservation, Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department, Oklahoma State University Research Extension, Lower Mountain Fork River Foundation, US Forest Service and Weyerhaeuser Company, will also discuss career opportunities with the teens.

The fee for campers is $250, which covers all costs, including lodging, meals, field trips, workshops and transportation at camp. A limited number of partial scholarships are available to help defray the cost. Camp staff applications are also being accepted.

Teens are encouraged to register now for this extraordinary camp experience, as space fills up quickly and registration closes in mid May.
