Trout Unlimited camper scholarship available

— The Lake Champlain Chapter of Trout Unlimited will again provide scholarships for interested young men and women 12 to 17 years old to attend DEC’s popular summer camp program.

The camps, located at Camp Colby, Pack Forest, Debruce, and Rushford, provide a great opportunity to learn more about our environment and to have fun in the summer. Parents provide transport to and from the camp for the one-week sessions which are conducted in july and august. The scholarships are a memorial to Sam Theusen and Dennis Aprill, outstanding educators, leaders and anglers who devoted their life to the North Country.

To apply, send a one-page letter telling why you are interested in learning more about the outdoors in New York State to Gretchen Comfort, 749 Norrisville Road, Schuyler Falls, NY, 12985 by March 31. For more info for campers and parents, go to dec.ny.gov/education.
