Even though campers are bused to different on-site locations throughout the county, this camp is based out of the Conservation District building at 4000 Conewango Avenue in Warren.

Snacks, lunch, and dinner will be provided each day except on the last day of camp when parents are asked to bring a dish to share for a pot-luck dinner with the campers and staff.

CNC will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the pavilion of the Hatch Run Conservation Demonstration Area on Hatch Run Road.

Children will learn and discover the uniqueness and importance of water, soil, plants, and animals in our local environment.

Kids in the Children’s Nature Camp will also have a chance to play in the stream and fish in the pond; where some campers have caught their first fish.

Warren County Conservation District’s Kindergarten Nature Camp (KNC) is for children going into kindergarten this fall. The camp will also be based out of the pavilion of the Hatch Run Conservation Demonstration Area on Hatch Run Road. The camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 25.

A snack will be provided each day for CNC and KNC, but parents are responsible for sending kids with their own lunches.

The application deadline for all CNC’s and also KNC is June 21. The cost for each camp is YCC – $60 per child, CNC – $40 per child, and KNC – $20 per child.
