The Cavendish Community and Conservation Association is offering
a full scholarship to one young adult from Cavendish between the
ages of 12-14 for a one week session at the Edward F. Kehoe
Conservation Camp located on Lake Bomoseen in Castleton.
Separate weeks are offered for girls and boys but either may apply.
The Camp is operated by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department,
and promotes young people's awareness and understanding of natural
resource management. Youth attending the Conservation Camp will
have the opportunity to learn about Vermont's natural resources
such as fishing, hunting, hiking and camping.
Fly fishing, fly tying and casting, firearm safety, archery,
canoeing, camping and hiking, forestry, botany and learning about
Vermont wildlife are just some of the activities offered. The
camp has a tremendous reputation with youth and adults from all
over the state and we have heard first hand from Cavendish
residents about the positive experiences their children have
If you would like to apply for the scholarship please write a brief
letter on why you like the outdoors and what outdoor activities you
enjoy, and send it to Tim O'Donoghue, 733 Newton Rd., Proctorsville
Vt. 05153. Please send your letter no later than May 7 and Tim will
be in touch with the winner within a week. If you have any
questions, call Tim at 226-7023. You can read more about the camp
