Forestry and Environmental Camps are for sixth grade students across the state at selected schools interested in learning more about forests, forestry and the forest products industry. Camps include several days of hands on activities on various topics with a final competition day where students compete against their peers on content learned throughout the week. Preference is given to schools with an onsite forested green space or adjacent to a park. Activities are led by volunteers that represent the field of forestry and wood products industry.
Currently, camps are offered in Wilmington, Greensboro, Raleigh and Lake Norman will offer its first camp in the fall of 2017.
Please see the left-hand side of the screen for our hands-on lesson plans that are available to teach during the camps. All lessons are correlated to the NC Essential Stands for Science, Math and Social Studies. An Educator Planning Guide will be mailed to teachers upon request.
