Summer 2005 Camp Group
     Next June, you can be one of 24 high school students, both male and female, who will spend most of six days outdoors experiencing mountain streams, fishing and learning about stream environments.  You will learn about successful and responsible fishing, conservation, stream life and restoration, wildlife, outdoor skills, team challenges, leadership, and lots more, all while having fun.  You’ll enjoy delicious generous meals and snacks, and sleeping in modern lodge facilities overlooking the Shenandoah mountains and valleys.  (You need to be 
in the 8th, 9th, 10th, or 11th grade now, or will be 13 years old by the first day of camp.)

     You don’t need any special experience or equipment—the Camp can provide it.  All you need is to be interested and want to attend.  The cost of the six-day, five-night Camp is $800.  We provide full or partial funding for any camper who requests sponsorship to attend the Camp.  Hope to see you in June!
