Programs and Activities

This two week overnight summer camp for girls and boys 13 -17 years of age offers a program of conservation education and instruction in outdoor recreation skills. It introduces youth to the ethical concepts and knowledge essential to a lifetime of properly enjoying our natural resources and the leisure activities that depend on their careful stewardship.

Safety is taught in every class...

 

Conservation subjects taught include Fish & Pond Life, Forestry, Soil Conservation, and Wildlife Management.  Outdoor skills taught include Archery, Basic Camping, Fly & Spin Casting, Orienteering, Riflery, and Shotgun.  These courses are lead by experts in their field.  Additional MJCC curriculum involves the Massachusetts Hunter Education Program and Small Boat Safety.

 

Other Activities Offered

Campers participate in all courses presented, however ample opportunity is provided for relaxation and recreation through many traditional summer camp activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, softball and volleyball. In addition, opportunities exist for extra time on the shotgun, rifle and archery ranges.

Optional programs in the past have included Whitewater Rafting and Field to Table, a course focused on teaching students safe ways to clean and serve fish or game.

The program brings campers in contact with experts on many aspects of natural resource management and outdoor recreation.

 

       

The Massachusetts Junior Conservation Camp is a two week experience allowing youth to develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime.
