DEC Camp Scholarship
The Schuyler County Environmental Management Council is once again offering a scholarship to one youth between the ages 12-17 to attend a week at the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Camp in the Adirondacks.
DEC Education Camps consist of a variety of workshops and activities which are designed to help campers become more aware of the environment around them and, perhaps, stimulate their desire to participate in the sound management of our natural resources. The activities and workshops are a blend of learning and recreation. They are conducted outdoors providing the camper with direct hands-on experience with their environment.
Scholarship covers the camp fee ($325) for one week of participation in the camp, including meals. Campers must be able to find their own transportation to and from the camp in the Adirondacks.
For more information on the DEC camp program please visit http://www.dec.ny.gov/education/1872.html.
Applications due no later than March 1, 2009.
Application materials can be found at the Cornell Cooperative Extension office at 323 Owego Street, Montour Falls, or by calling Jenna Hicks at 607-535-7161.
