Scholarships Open to Kids for 2020 Summer Camps
Ten lucky children in West MI, ages 9-14, have a chance to win an outdoor adventure for next summer at a youth camp run by the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC).
Each scholarship is worth $400 to $450. Winners will have their choice of a six-day,five-night night camping experience courtesy of the West Michigan Bowhunters, a local chapter of Safari Club International (SCI).
Campers can go fishing, try sports like archery, shooting and kayaking, and learn about conservation of natural resources. They also will construct crafts, swim and practice outdoor safety skills. Kids from around the state participate and make new friends and memories, while roasting marshmallows and telling tales over open campfires.
The MUCC youth camps are held each June or July at the Cedar Lake Outdoor Center at the Waterloo State Recreation Area near Chelsea (MI). MUCC has run the camps since 1946 and more than 57,000 youths have attended.
Camp themes include Conservation Connections, Wetland Wonders, Hunting Heritage and Primitive Skills, along with basic firearm shooting safety. Young campers can also earn Hunter Safety certificates.
Local scholarship winners will be announced at the West MI Bowhunters annual convention-fundraiser on Sat. Feb. 29, 2020 at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville.
