CHESTER, Vt. – Green Mountain Conservation Camp offers opportunities for hiking, canoeing, fishing, archery, .22 rifle and shotgun shooting, orienteering, and other fun activities. Campers have a unique opportunity to meet Vermont State Game Wardens, foresters, fisheries and wildlife biologists, and others who work in the outdoors.
Wildlife education and outdoor skills are the focus of GMCC and the program’s goal is to cultivate a caring attitude among our youth for Vermont’s fish and wildlife resources. There are separate weeks for boys and girls. Basic week session is for boys and girls ages 12-14. Children must be 12 years old before or during the week they attend camp. Advance week session is for boys and girls ages 12-16 whom have completed the basic week. Campers cannot attend both a basic week session and an advanced week session in the same summer.
Chester Rod and Gun Club is sponsoring scholarships for students interested in participating Green Mountain Conservation Camp. Any interested student needs to submit a one-page essay on what they enjoy about the outdoors and why they would like to attend GMCC. Essay must be received by April 1, 2019.
