Explore the great outdoors and future careers! The 4-H Forestry Fun Camp is a fun, interactive multi-day camp where youth learn to look at trees through a different lens. Through hands-on activities, such as tree identification, measuring forests and identifying insects and tree diseases, youth will learn about the various aspects of forestry and forest management. While exploring the many careers available in the forestry field, youth will develop a mini-forest management plan and have the opportunity to earn a Silver Forestry Digital Badge!
4-H Forestry Fun Camp was held July 6-7, 2015 in West Branch, Michigan. It is open to young people ages 10 – 15. Learn more by visiting the registration site, viewing the event flier or reviewing the 2015 camp impact summary.
