Looking for an amazing opportunity to learn more about the outdoors and conservation? Check out the Camp Canopy!


From June 10-15, the Ohio Forestry Association Foundation, ODNR Divisions of Wildlife & Forestry, Ohio State University Extension, and county Soil & Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs) will be putting on a week-long camp called Camp Canopy! You may recognize this as last year’s camp called Ohio Forestry and Wildlife Conservation Camp at the FFA Camp Muskingum camp in Carroll County. The camp is open to all high school students (incoming freshmen through graduating seniors). Deadline to sign up is Friday, June 8.

According to the Division of Wildlife website:

“If you love the outdoors and want to learn more about how trees grow and where wildlife like to live, this is the camp for you,” said Jeremy Scherf, camp co-director and service forester with the ODNR Division of Forestry. “We are offering some new sessions along with great educational and recreational activities for our campers this summer.”

At the end of the camp, students will take an exam and tree identification test over what was learned. The highest scoring students will compete for scholarships for The Ohio State University, Hocking College, and Ohio University. A total of $6,000 will be awarded this year.
