    Nature High Summer Camp will not be held in 2019

    Dates for 2020: TBD

    Nature High Summer Camp is a week long, high energy learning experience for high school aged youth living in the state of Utah. The camp is sponsored by several federal and state organizations and the cost per student is only $100.00

    Set in the Manti-LaSal National Forest, the Great Basin Station provides an idyllic setting in which to learn about natural resources management. Federal professionals share their expertise by providing actual field experiences in hydrology, rangeland conservation, wildlife biology, soils, and forestry. They help the participants see the fun,and frustrations, of a federal resource management career.

    Students apply their learning by tackling some local, real world, management issues. They are divided into teams that represent user groups and are challenged to find collaborative solutions. Student comments at the end of camp provide insight to their experiences. Throughout the week, campers also participate in team games, ropes course, guest speaker symposiums, campfire programs, and a star party at the top of the world.
