Natural Resources Careers Camp (NRCC) is a great summer opportunity for Maryland high school students who are interested in forests, wildlife, or natural resources. At NRCC, students learn about a wide range of forest, wildlife and natural resources topics with challenging hands-on lessons. They explore careers through field and classroom experiences led by professionals currently working in the field. College credit is available from Allegany College of Maryland, and “college night” brings representatives of colleges and university from around the region to camp to meet with students one-on-one.
This week-long residential camp will be held in Garrett County, July 21 – July 27, 2013. The cost is $500, with scholarships available from your local Forestry Board.
Students who have attended this program in the past give it rave reviews, and many say it was key in helping them launch their careers! Encourage the students in your life to check it out and apply today!
