Billy Lancaster Forestry Youth Camp
The 2016 camp will be held from Sunday, July 10, through Thursday, July 14. The camp was expanded to a four day format to facilitate field trips and more hands-on activities in the field. The camp is advertised to middle school science teachers who then select science students who receive a scholarship to come to the camp. The campers are rising 7th and 8th graders.
Any Georgia Division forester who has an age-appropriate child and is interested in having them attend the camp should contact Kassie Keck at the Georgia Forestry Commission at 478.751.3530 or fax at 478.751.3559. Download the letter and application here (pdf).
