The ever-popular Shelby County Conservation Day Camp is back! The theme this year is “Space Camp” and will be held June 22 through 24 at the Shelby County Fish and Game Club from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. At just $30 for three days of hands-on outdoor learning doing and fun, this camp is a real bargain. Any Shelby County student finishing grades second through fifth can attend.
A wide variety of activities for Space Camp include tie-dying a camp T-shirt, a visiting mobile planetarium, and learning the basics of archery and fishing. Campers also will be able to eat their way through moon phases, learn about the sounds of space, and create their own inspirational moon rock, plus a whole lot more. We hope campers are ready for a busy and fun three days of camp!
There are a few openings available, but you need to hurry in order to secure your child’s spot. Contact any of the following camp sponsors with questions or to request a registration form:

Camp counselors, helpers needed
We are also seeking camp counselors/helpers. We cannot have a successful camp with out the hard work of our counselors! We are needing responsible students finishing grades seven through 12 who are good with kids and want to develop their leadership skills.
