Mississippi Soil and Water Conservation Youth Camp is an annual event sponsored by MACD with the support of MSWCC, USDA/NRCS, and Local SWCD's.
The camp, held at Hinds Community College in Raymond, Mississippi, educates our state's youth about our natural resources. Participants must be going into grades 10, 11, or 12. Students who have graduated are not eligible, and students are not allowed to repeat the camp.
One student, who exhibits an outstanding interest and aptitude for natural resources, will be awarded a scholarship from the MACD Endowment Fund during the closing banquet. The cost of the camp per student is $100.00.
