Registration Now Open For Keystone/TU Teens Conservation Camp June 23-29

Registrations are now being accepted for the Keystone/Trout Unlimited Teens Conservation Camp to be held from June 23 to 29 at Keystone College in Dickson City, Lackawanna County.
Teens ages 14 to 18 with or without experience can register for this fun-filled week of learning and developing skills, while establishing lifelong friends at the same time.
Keystone/TUTeens has been in existence for the last six years and is located on the Southern Branch of Tunkhannock Creek on the campus of Keystone College, just minutes from Scranton at the gateway to Pennsylvania’s Endless Mountains region.
Instruction includes tackle nomenclature, casting, fly tying, environmental sciences, team building, plant identification, waterways protection, and a final conservation project.
Boy Scouts can earn merit badges and Girl Scouts can earn Stream Girl patches. The Stream Girls curriculum allows young girls to develop an interest in the outdoors and outdoor sciences, including engineering sciences of water and hydraulics.
The addition of the Stream Girls curriculum now completes our plan to convert from STEM-based education to what National TU refers to as STREAM-based education – Science Technology Recreation Engineering Art and Math.
Instructors include professionals from the Fish and Boat Commission, Department of Environmental Protection, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (Parks and Forestry), county conservation districts, university professors, conservation groups, and volunteers from National TU, Pennsylvania Council of Trout Unlimited and local Trout Unlimited chapters.
To register or for more information, visit the Keystone/Trout Unlimited Teens Conservation Camp website.  Questions or requests for information can be sent to: or call Charlie Charlesworth at 570-954-5042.
