Kauffman Encourages High School Students Interested in an Environmental Career to Apply for State ECO Camp
3/9/2012
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Cumberland/Franklin) is encouraging high school students with an interest in the environment to apply for the state’s Exploring Careers Outdoor (ECO) Camp sponsored by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).

“Today’s youth have been raised with an awareness and appreciation of the importance of protecting and preserving our environment, and some may have an interest in cultivating that interest into a future career,” said Kauffman. “This summer camp provides the perfect opportunity to connect with those in an environmental profession, while exploring fun activities that provide even greater exposure to the great outdoors.”

ECO Camp is a week-long, overnight summer camp for 20 to 25 high school students entering grades 10 through 12. The camp focuses on outdoor careers pertaining to recreation, water quality assessments, geology and conservation. Professional staff from DCNR serve as counselors and educators throughout the week.

The camp begins July 8 at Kirby Episcopal House and Chapel in Glen Summit, near Nescopeck State Park in Luzerne County. The program is free to a limited number of students selected by a committee based on their application, an essay and recommendations. The deadline to apply is April 15.

“Time is running out, so I encourage interested students to apply today for the program,” said Kauffman. “Those who attend also often have the opportunity to seek internships, mentoring and job-shadowing positions which provides them with a leg up over the competition in these growing career fields.”

For more information or an application, contact Kauffman’s district offices at 166 S. Main St. in Chambersburg, telephone (717) 264-3943 or 9974 Molly Pitcher Highway in Shippensburg, telephone (717) 532-1707, or visit his website at www.RepKauffman.com.
