Apply for the Debra Bell Levesque Scholarship to Barry Conservation Camp

The Candia Conservation Commission is now accepting applications for the Debra Bell Levesque Scholarship to Barry Conservation Camp for the Summer of 2018. Candia youths, ages 10-16, are encouraged to apply and experience a week in the great outdoors.

The 2018 Conservation Camp week reserved is July 15-20: 4-H On The Wild Side (age 10-16)

The description reads: “Experience nature and reunite with the great outdoors. You may have a chance to create a meal from gathered plants, fillet a fish and cook it over an open fire, sleep under the stars, climb a mountain, swim in a pond, create nature crafts, and more. Truly experience the great outdoors. Campers will also have a chance to enjoy a host of traditional camp activities like campfires, hikes, outdoor games, archery, and more. Sounds like fun!

If this interests you, find out more about the camp on the UNH Extension Barry Conservation Camp website and consider filling out our application. All applications must be received by January 15, 2018.
