Conservation Camps

The Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department owns two Green Mountain Conservation Camps (GMCCs), located on Buck Lake in Woodbury and on Lake Bomoseen in Castleton.  These camps offer week-long hands-on summer programs for boys and girls ages 12-16 to learn about natural resources and the outdoors. Activities include hiking, fishing, canoeing, archery, rifle and shotgun shooting, as well as the opportunity to meet Vermont State Game Wardens, foresters, fisheries, and wildlife biologists.

Agency Facilities works closely with the Fish and Wildlife Department to design and maintain the infrastructure at GMCCs, so that campers may have the most enjoyable experience.  Past projects include parking areas, toilet buildings, water and wastewater systems, shooting ranges, and designing the Education Center at Kehoe Conservation Camp on Lake Bomoseen.
