The NCFA conducts Forestry and Environmental Camps for sixth grade students across the state at selected school interested in learning more about forests, forestry and the forest products industry. The camps typically take place at a local park near the participating school and consists of two or three days of instruction prior to the final competition day where students compete against each other in groups to see who has learned the most during the camp.
Currently, camps are offered in Wilmington and Greensboro. In previous years, the camps took place in Raleigh, Wilkesboro, Charlotte and Asheville. The camp instruction is provided by volunteers, including NCFA members and North Carolina Forest Services personnel.
The topics covered during the camps are listed on the lefthand side with the corresponding teacher worksheet.
If you would like to volunteer to teach at one of these camps, please contact Chris Brown at (800) 231-7723 ext. 3
