Quercus virginiana, Georgia state tree
Billy Lancaster Forestry Youth Camp
The 2015 camp was held from Sunday, July 5, through Thursday, July 9. 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 Myrt Phillips at the Georgia Forestry Commission at 478.751.3528 or fax at 478.751.3559. Download the letter and application here (pdf).
