Range Camp 2016
Each year, the RCD offers one fully sponsored place at Range Camp, a week-long opportunity for students aged 15-18 to discover the science and management of our natural resources and learn from experienced professionals and university faculty.
The RCD sponsorship includes payment of the $450 camp fee and round-trip airfare. To be eligible, students must be between 15-18 years of age and live or attend high school in our service area, which covers the majority of the County (a map is included in the application pack below).
Students who wish to apply for a sponsored place must submit their application to the RCD by April 22. Applicants who are able to self-fund should apply directly to the Range Camp organizers by April 29. Click here more information about Range Camp.
