Camp Canopy scholarship offered


SIDNEY — Do you know or are you a high school student who loves nature, trees and/or wildlife? If so, Shelby Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) has a great opportunity for you – a scholarship to attend Camp Canopy.

A summer camp like no other, Camp Canopy is a mix of traditional camp activities and educational activity sessions centered around all things forestry and wildlife, to keep your brains as sharp as a pine needle during the summer months. The camp is sponsored by the Ohio Forestry Association and gives students the opportunity to interact with natural resource professionals from many environmental fields. The camp is open to students entering freshman year of high school up to graduating seniors (19 years of age). Camp Canopy will take place from June 11-16, 2023, at FFA Camp Muskingum located on Leesville Lake in the rolling hills of Carroll County.

Shelby SWCD is offering one scholarship covering the full cost of the Camp ($400) which includes meals and programs. Students must provide their own transportation to and from the camp as well as their own spending money. Applicants must be a current resident of Shelby County.

The scholarship application can be obtained from Amanda Hurley at [email protected] or 937-492-6520, ext. 2597. Application deadline is April 27, 2023, at 4 p.m.; applicants will be notified by May 4, 2023, of the results. Contact Amanda Hurley at Shelby SWCD with any questions.
