PENNSYLVANIA, Clinton County CD – This year marks the 28th Annual Conservation Summer Day Camp at the Sieg Conference Center — a week-long day camp where local kids participate in hands-on activities that allow them to learn about the environment in exciting ways.

The camp is organized and sponsored by the Clinton County Conservation District, with a group of counselors and educators led by Camp Director Toby Boyer and Manager Mary Ann Bower.

“I love seeing how excited the kids get about learning about the environment,” Bower said. “It is a good feeling.”

Campers get to participate in a variety of exciting educational activities throughout the week, including fishing, making bird boxes, tying flies, studying wildlife, and several field trips, such as visiting Penn’s Cave and Wildlife Park and a fish hatchery.

Kids also get to hear from local environmental experts, including biologists, geologists, and natural resource professionals, who conduct presentations throughout the week.

“It’s enjoyable giving them knowledge and allowing them to have hands-on experience with the environment,” said Conservation Officer Mike Ondik, who volunteers at the day camp.
