NCRR_tree-trimming.pngThis seven-day camp is designed for high school students. The Forestry Boards are responsible for recruiting two students from their counties, interviewing, and providing partial scholarships.

Students who have reached the age of 16 by the first day of Natural Resources Career Camp week may choose to earn two college credits from Allegany College of Maryland by attending the entire week and complete an exam. The credits will transfer to most community colleges in Maryland and several four year colleges and universities.

NCRR_wildfire-training2.pngNatural resource professionals have developed the extensive and relevant curriculum. Traditional Forestry is the main focus of this educational experience with the inclusion of GIS and GPS technology, Urban Forestry, Wildlife Habitat, Fisheries, and Watershed ecology. This co-educational camp provides an opportunity for high school students interested in a career in Natural Resources to learn from industry professionals and develop contacts for future employment and a career in natural resources.
