Youth Corps Camping Programs combine education and job skill training with outdoor adventure for ages 16 to 19. With the guidance of experienced field staff, youth crew members work on projects, while developing leadership skills and learning how to work as a team. Crews camp in the field for their entire 6 week session, traveling to a new project often. In addition to earning an educational stipend, AmeriCorps education award, and high school credit, participants gain a sense of pride that comes with hard work, learn to become stewards of the land, and develop lasting friendships! This program begins 9/16 and ends 10/28 in Eugene, Oregon.
Earned AmeriCorps Award: $1,527
