Monroe County Conservation District and Monroe County Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs Sponsors Conservation Camp

Looking for something different and exciting to do this summer? Sign up for the Monroe County Conservation Camp, sponsored by Monroe County Conservation District and Monroe County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs! Open to all teens, ages 14 through this year’s high school graduate. Come spend a week at Stony Acres, a 119-acre Wildlife Sanctuary/Recreational Facility owned by the students of East Stroudsburg University, and learn about the natural wonders that are living all around us.

The Monroe County Conservation Camp is a residential camp being held from Saturday, July 16th through Saturday, July 23rd. In its 47th year at Stony Acres, some of the campers’ favorite programs include stream and pond study, trapshooting and firearm safety, bird banding, archery, confidence/ropes course, and bass and fly fishing. But what really makes Conservation Camp unique is the two-day, overnight canoe trip on the Delaware River. Supported by the Kettle Creek Environmental Fund, the camp program presenters include professionals from the Pennsylvania Game Commission, Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Tobyhanna Conservation Association, Blue Ridge/Cherry Valley Rod and Gun Club, National Park Service, Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, and Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation & Education Center. The campers are provided with many programs to teach them about wildlife and natural resource conservation/management.

Monroe County Conservation Camp activities & programs are designed to comply with current CDC guidance.

Cost: $200, which includes the $75 application fee and the $125 camp fee. The application fee must be paid by the student and included with the application. The camp fee may be paid by the student, a sponsoring organization, or by a scholarship. A limited amount of scholarships are available by request.
