Colorado Trout Unlimited is now accepting applications for the Tenth Annual River Conservation and Fly Fishing Youth Camp, June 14-19, 2015 at the Bar N I Ranch near Weston, CO. Applications must be received by April 15, 2015.
The camp is designed to educate 14 to 18 year old students on the importance of coldwater conservation and provide hands-on fly fishing instruction. Approximately 20 students are selected each year, based on their qualifications and a written essay on why they would like to attend the camp.
“Our hope is that kids who attend our camp today will become the conservation leaders of tomorrow,” said Shawn Bratt, a veteran youth camp counselor and winner of national Trout Unlimited’s Outstanding Youth Education Volunteer. “It’s important for these students to understand the value of healthy streams and clean water and how they relate to our everyday lives. The camp curriculum has been structured to provide the necessary foundation for that education.”
