DEC Campership

Scholarships to Department of Environmental Education Conservation Camp:

One of the goals of our Mission Statement is to “educate individuals to the proper usage of wilderness areas.” Each year the 46ers pay the tuition for four students from the high peaks region between the ages of 12 -17 to attend one of the DEC Conservation Camps. The main focus of the camps is environmental education. Mary Lamb and Lisa Crandall work with staff at area schools to select campers from a pool of interested applicants.
