The 2020 program will run from June 27th to July 18th. Youth and leaders are hired for one 3-week session. After several days of training, they will travel as a crew to projects throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, working 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Work activities include managing natural resources in parks and public lands and participating in daily training and education. As the summer program is a few week-long programs, youth and leaders will be away from home for the entirety of the program. Weekends and evenings are filled with recreational activities such as canoeing, hiking, rock climbing, fishing, games, backpacking, visiting historical places, meeting Deaf and hard of hearing professionals in outdoor and conservation fields, and more.
