Youth Programs

Ada SWCD believes it’s important to teach the next generation the value of conservation. We provide sponsorship for participation in the Envirothon or Natural Resources Camp.

Natural Resources Camp

Discover nature, experience wildlife, learn the science of forestry, and the vital role soil plays in all natural life. Held at the University of Idaho 4-H Camp in Challis.

Scholarships covering half the tuition are available for all students. Students that are part of the AVID program may qualify for a full scholarship. Please contact our office for more details.

Deadline: Due to the University of Idaho’s COVID-19 policy, speaker and participant travel limitations, and other concerns associated with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Natural Resource Camp.
