Environmental Careers Camp

DCNR applications open for Environmental Careers Camp 

Until April 15, the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is accepting applications for its summer residential camp program, Exploring Careers Outdoors Camp. The six-day camp begins Sunday, July 8, at Camp Kresge, White Haven, Luzerne County. The camp is near Nescopeck State Park and about 10 miles north of White Haven.

The camp will introduce 20 students in grades 10-12 to conservation and environmental careers, and encourage their pursuit. From wildlife conservation projects and stream sampling of aquatic life, to various forestry skills, daily activities offer students a hands-on, team-building learning experience in an outdoor setting. Participants explore a wide range of career experiences, including water quality assessments, geology field studies, and overnight camping experiences. They also will meet conservation professionals to learn about career opportunities.

Offered free of charge, the instruction and daily activities will be overseen by specialists and officials of DCNR's bureaus of State Parks and Forestry. After the camp, attendees will have a chance to seek internships, job-shadowing and other career-related opportunities through the camp's mentor program.
