The Nature High Summer Camp is a week long high energy learning experience for High School aged youth living in the state of Utah. The camp is sponsored by several federal agencies and costs only $50.00 for students.
Application Deadline is May 17th, 2013
Set in the Manti-LaSal National Forest, the Great Basin Environmental Education Center provides an idyllic setting to learn about natural resources management. Federal professionals share their expertise by providing actual field experiences in Hydrology, Rangeland Conservation, Wildlife Biology, Soils and Forestry. They help the participants see the fun, (and frustrations) of a federal career.
Students apply their learning by tackling some local real world management issues. They are divided into teams that represent real user groups and put to finding collaborative solutions. Student comments at the end of camp provide insight to their experience.
Throughout the week we have fun with team games, a cultural Olympics, local guest speakers, a tour of Snow College (including a few hours in the recreation center), campfire programs, and a star party at the top of the world. Take a look at the schedule!
