The Steuben County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) has announced their Conservation Camp will take place on July 11 at Pokagon State Park. This year’s theme is Our Wonderful Water! The camp costs $10.00 per camper ages 8 – 14 and runs from 9:00 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. with lunch provided. Drop off is at the Pokagon Nature Center, with afternoon pickup at the CCC Shelter. The day will be filled with a presentation by Pokagon interpretive naturalists, a nature hike, a craft, lunch, and afternoon games and activities. This camp is one of three being offered in Northeast Indiana this summer. LaGrange County’s Camp has been scheduled for June 20th and Whitley County’s Camp is scheduled for August 1st.
Steuben County SWCD is once again offering a scholarship for Steuben County 8 – 14 year-old youth that would like to attend the July 11th Conservation Camp at Pokagon or any of the NE Indiana Conservation camps. This means the total cost for each Steuben County camper will only be $5.00/camp! Space is limited. The deadline to register for the Steuben County Conservation Camp is July 3. Sign up soon – spaces fill quickly!
