Applications are now being accepted for the Carbon County Environmental Education Center's Conservation Camp Monday through Friday, August 8 to 12.

The week long event is at Hickory Run State Park and allows children ages 8 through 12 the opportunity to connect with nature through hands-on, feet-in activities.

Campers will enjoy hikes, crafts, games, whitewater rafting, campfires and plenty of healthy, outdoor play.
