MONTPELIER — The Fish & Wildlife Department has canceled its summer Conservation Camp program for this year, along with a course for educators, owing to concerns about COVID-19.
According to the department, it could not find a practical way to run the camps in accordance with COVID-19 safety guidelines.
About 900 young people attend the camps annually, according to the department. Half of them do so on scholarships made possible by outdoor organizations. Those who’ve already registered for the program can get a refund. Email FWGMCC@vermont.gov or call 802-828-1460.
