DEC camps combine environmental education, hunter education programs, and outdoor recreation into a fun adventure. We use a hands-on approach to teach about the environment. Camps run Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon.
Each year, the RCCA and its Member Clubs join together to sponsor seven (7) young people to attend the NYS DEC Camp Colby located on Lake Colby in the Adirondacks.
This is a week-long residency camp where children have the opportunity to experience archery, canoeing, fishing, birding, hiking, outdoor skills, swimming, taking a hunter education program, and going on local field trips.
If you are part of one of the RCCA's Member Clubs and have a child between 11-17 year old and would like to be sponsored, please contact Adam South, RCCA Summer Camp Chair.
