High School Students: DCNR Invites Students to Apply for Summer Environmental Careers Camp

Young Pennsylvanians interested in pursuing environmental careers are invited to apply by April 15 for the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources' summer residential camp.
The Exploring Careers Outdoors Camp, or ECO Camp, will introduce 20 to 25 students in grades 10-12 to conservation and environmental careers.
This year's camp will begin Sunday, July 7, at Kirby Episcopal House and Chapel, Mountain Top, Luzerne County. The camp is near Nescopeck State Park and about 10 miles south of Wilkes-Barre.
During the six-day camp participants will be exposed to a wide range of career experiences, including water quality assessments, geology field studies, and overnight camping experiences. They will also meet conservation professionals to learn about career opportunities. After the camp, attendees will have a chance to seek internships, mentoring and job-shadowing positions.
For more details or an application, visit www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/ecocamp; call 724-865-7857; or email ECO_Camp@pa.gov.
