Nature and Conservation

The Nature and Conservation department has been dedicated to teaching about the environment and the importance of preserving it. From the early days in the 'Bug House' to its current location in and around Roberts Lodge, the summer camp staff has continued to provide this education to generations of young Scouts through merit badge classes, quality displays and live demonstrations.
