The South Carolina Waterfowl Association (SCWA) and the Boone and Crockett Club (B&C), North America’s oldest wildlife conservation organization, are proud to announce their new partnership – The Boone and Crockett/Camp Woodie Fellowship Program. Thanks to a $64,000 grant from the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, SCWA and the B&C Club have partnered to create a youth wildlife and fisheries conservation fellowship program for 16 and 17 year olds who are seriously considering a career in the field of wildlife conservation.
Next Spring, 30 Camp Woodie alumni will be selected to receive the fellowship. Recipients will attend a Level-3 Camp Woodie week where they will interact with wildlife professionals to learn about a career in field of wildlife and fisheries conservation and education. At the end of the weeklong session they will fly to Montana to spend a week at the 6,000 acre Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Ranch where they will enjoy a 5-day Outdoor Adventure Camp instructed by western wildlife professionals. Thanks to the grant from Cabelas all expenses will be covered for the program. The fellowship recipients will represent the best and brightest 16 and 17 year olds who are considering a career as natural resource conservation professionals.
Those interested in applying for the fellowship should contact Justin Grider, Camp Woodie Director, via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
