If you’re interested in wildlife conservation, working outdoors, and educating youth, then jumpstart your conservation career with a position at the Green Mountain Conservation Camps.
ABOUT THE CAMP
Green Mountain Conservation Camp (GMCC) is administered by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department and includes twin summer camps with the mission of educating youth about Vermont’s natural resources. The camps give youth life skills and knowledge they can use to continue the state's traditional rural pursuits--enjoying all aspects of the outdoor world. The program's greatest strength is connecting young people to the outdoors.
The Green Mountain Conservation Camps are located at two sites:
- Edward F. Kehoe Camp in Castleton, VT
- Buck Lake Camp in Woodbury, VT.
Annually, about 1,000 kids between the ages of 12-16 spend a week at GMCC. The camps run for nine weeks in the summer, and there are separate weeks for boys and girls.
Eighteen residential summer staff (directors and instructors/counselors) operate this summer program as seasonal employees. In addition, close to 75 youth serve as Junior Counselors, a youth development leadership program for highly motivated past camp graduates.
