Of all the 4-H programs offered, Forestry Camp has yielded some of the most impressive evaluations of kids we have sent from Orange. Anyone with an interest in the great outdoors is encouraged to attend this wonderful event. See below for a description from the camp director, plus information on how to participate.
Nominations are open through April 8 for the 65th annual Holiday Lake Forestry Camp, scheduled for June 13-18 at Holiday Lake 4-H Center near Appomattox. The camp is open to Virginia boys and girls aged 13-16 who have an interest in natural resources. This residential camp provides hands-on field experiences in topics such as tree identification, forest ecology and management, environmental protection, tree measurements, and wildlife management. Nominations may come from any non-related adult who knows of the student's interest. Forms and information can be found at www.dof.virginia.gov/edu/camp.htm.
