Teen Outdoor Stewardship Camp
Introducing a new and exciting summer program - the Teen Outdoor Stewardship Camp!
The Teen Outdoor Stewardship Camp is a day-camp format for youth who are entering 9th-12th grades in Fall 2019. Through partnerships with Adams State Adventure Programs, the City of Alamosa, Adams State University's new Outdoor Education & Stewardship program, Great Sand Dunes National Park, and SLV GO!, we are excited to have this new program to offer students from all across the San Luis Valley. This year's camp will introduce teens to the amazing variety of water uses in our upper Rio Grande Watershed - from ancient peoples camping along the Rio Grande to current forestry management practices and wildlife habitat. This camp is designed to keep youth moving around the San Luis Valley alongside Adams State recreation staff and other outdoor professionals as they experience the wide variety of ecosystems up and down the Rio Grande River. If your teen enjoyed youth conservation camp as a child or is involved in an FFA or 4H program, then they will LOVE Teen Outdoor Stewardship Camp!
Registration will be limited to 20 participants - so if you know a student who loves to be outside, enjoys learning and being actively engaged with outdoor activities, encourage them to apply.
Cost: $150/participant. This covers ALL transportation, meals, and supplies other than personal clothing.
Financial support is available, please contact the program director.
