Camps provide positive educational outdoor experiences, foster an appreciation for nature, and introduce a variety of careers in natural resources and conservation.

Professionals from various agencies present programs on topics like wildlife, habitat, water quality, fisheries, forestry, orienteering, and canoeing. These professionals, as well as adult volunteers, serve as overnight staff and group leaders for the duration of camp.

Campers can make new friends, participate in hands-on activities, practice social & leadership skills, enjoy the outdoors and just have fun!

Brad Matson Memorial Conservation Camp Scholarship

In honor of Iron County Supervisor and WI Land+Water Board of Director member Brad Matson, the Youth Education Committee established a camp scholarship in his name. Brad was a passionate supporter of conservation programming for youth and his scholarship will give students who otherwise may not have the chance to experience the outdoors the opportunity to through our conservation summer camps.
