Camp Rocky open to teens

Janice Dixon
CSU Cooperative Extension

Colorado youth will team up with environmental educators to learn how the world works and how people can manage the environment at Camp Rocky on July 8-14.

The goals of the workshop are to teach youth natural resource stewardship and prepare them for leadership roles in natural resource conservation. The participants will learn techniques for applying conservation practices in their own environments and prepare for advanced training.

Camp Rocky is held at the Rocky Mountain Camp near Divide, Colorado. Colorado youth between 14-19 years of age participate in field classes. They also explore, discuss and use critical thinking and problem solving techniques to find solutions for various controversial environmental issues. Additional activities include volleyball games, hiking, campfire, and a dance.

Registration is $250 and includes food, lodging, transportation during the program, educational activities, and a t-shirt. Scholarships are available from the Morgan Conservation District. Additional funding may be available for 4-H members.

To receive an application form, please contact the Morgan County Extension Center at (970) 542-3545 or (970) 248-0070. The camp fills on a first-come, first-serve basis, so early requests are appreciated.
