Youth Environmental Stewardship Camp

Love spending time outdoors? Is science your favorite subject in school? If so, then Haywood County Soil and Water Conservation District has an opportunity for you this summer. Our Youth Environmental Stewardship (YES) Camp is an one week day camp for rising 8th and 9th graders who are passionate about the environment. Each day, campers will participate in hands-on activities that will enrich their understanding of water and air quality, conservation, sustainability, climate, wildlife, soils and more. Check out some of the things campers will be doing this summer in the “Camp Highlights” section below.
