Camp sponsorships

Local sportsmen's clubs and other civic organizations reserve slots for campers and may offer a sponsorship to the camp. You should contact local clubs to learn if they are offering sponsorships. Often prospective campers must simply write a letter that explains why they want to attend camp and what they want to learn. The Conservation Camp also offers scholarships.
