New York State Run Summer Camps Taking Applications

Online registration is open for New York's four state-run environmental education summer camps.

Starting this spring, registration is online only, with paper applications and checks no longer accepted.  The camp fee is $350 per week. Activities include fishing, birding, fly-tying, archery, canoeing, hiking, orienteering and environmental study.

All four camps serve children ages 11 through 13: Camp Colby in Saranac Lake, Franklin County; Camp DeBruce in Livingston Manor, Sullivan County; Camp Rushford in Caneadea, Allegany County; and Pack Forest in Warrensburg, Warren County.

Pack Forest and Camp Rushford also host week-long Teen Ecology Workshops.  Information is on the Department of Environmental Conservation website.
