Teens ages 14-17 are invited to spend a weekend full of fun and adventure at the Edward F Kehoe Conservation Camp. Campers will be backpacking to a remote pond where they will spend the weekend participating on activities taught by department biologists, wardens and other staff. The entire weekend will be spent at the remote campsite with meals cooked on an open fire and campers sleeping in tents under the stars. Activities will include fishing, biology, backpacking, k9 demonstrations, and so much more!
This is a perfect way to unplug and engage with peers outdoors before heading back to the classroom.
