Go Wild!

Youth for Conservation camps

Learn skills, have fun and make a difference

Make new friendships, learn outdoor skills, become a conservationist! Go Wild! Youth for Conservation is just one of our programs that gets youth outdoors and teaches them how to be leaders and conservation stewards.

This camp is an opportunity to introduce youth aged 13 to 17 to a variety of outdoor activities that tie into important lessons on wildlife, ecology, and ethics in a fun and supportive environment. It’s perfect for kids who want to learn more about nature, wildlife and how they can make a difference!

Inspiring our conservation leaders of tomorrow, Go Wild! Youth for Conservation camps give youth a hands-on learning opportunity to learn outdoor and leadership skills they will use throughout their lives. At the camp, youth are taught by experts in their field in a safe and supportive atmosphere and are provided the opportunity to work on a conservation project unique to their camp experience.

Some of the skills learned at the Go Wild! camp include:

  • How to build a shelter in the woods
  • How to build a fire
  • Archery, firearms safety and hunting ethics
  • Canoeing and boat safety
  • Angling and fish identification
  • Importance of ecosystem biodiversity
  • Leadership skills

Each camp curriculum is region-specific and tailored to the local area, so no two Go Wild! camps are the same.
