CASTLETON—The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Dept. is offering two teen conservation weekends to be held at the Edward F. Kehoe Conservation Camp in Castleton this August.

“We are pleased to announce a fun and exciting opportunity for teens ages 15 to17,” said Hannah Phelps, camp coordinator. “The new Teen Conservation Weekends will allow us to provide teens with an exciting weekend of quality environmental education. Campers will arrive Saturday morning and immediately begin participating in hunter education programming, before backpacking out to a remote pond for an evening of camping and fishing.”

Each weekend is limited to 25 participants. Girls can attend on Aug. 14 and 15, and boys will be there Aug. 21 and 22. Arrival time is 8 a.m. on Saturday morning with departure time 4 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.

The cost for the weekend is $100, which includes all meals. Sponsorships are available on a limited basis. To register for the weekend, email a completed application found at bit.ly/2QhTnga to [email protected] For any questions call Phelps at 802-249-3199.
