Foresty Camp



The Virginia Department of Forestry, in cooperation with natural resource conservation agencies and organizations, has proudly administered Holiday Lake Forestry Camp for almost 60 years. This unique camping experience has introduced young Virginians to the challenges, special skills and knowledge needed for managing the forest resources we use and enjoy every day.

Holiday Lake Forestry Camp is ideal for students:
  • to explore and experience activities in forestry and wildlife related careers
  • who participate in forestry and wildlife judging teams, Envirothon competitions, or ecology clubs
  • to experience hands on learning about natural resources conservation


Classes are taught in the woods by professional foresters, wildlife biologists, and conservation resource specialists. Read more about Forestry Camp.
