Campers will spend the first night in the cabins, and then head out to a remote campsite with meals cooked on an open fire and campers sleeping in tents under the stars. Activities throughout the weekend will be centered around aquatic ecosystems this year, and will include fishing, boating, aquatic biology, and fish processing and cooking. Non-aquatic actives will include 3-D archery, telemetry, wildlife biology, and more!

Space is limited.  Please note: Teen Conservation Weekend is a co-ed event.
