Junior Game Warden Camps

These one-day Junior Game Warden Camps will offer youth ages 11 to 15 a structured, fun-filled day learning about the career of a Pennsylvania State Game Warden. Campers will spend the day with game wardens gaining insight to one of the most unique, diverse and exciting careers in the field of wildlife conservation.

The day will begin with a general overview of the Pennsylvania Game Commission and its mission. Then, campers will join wardens for some light physical fitness and confidence building prior to hands-on learning stations. Campers will learn about wildlife forensics and methods used by wardens to catch poachers and solve wildlife-related crimes. Other activities will involve wildlife capture techniques for nuisance complaints and research; woodland tracking; and outdoor survival. Attendees will get a glimpse of what it is like to work on the Thin Green Line as a Pennsylvania State Game Warden.


Junior Game Warden Camps will be held in two locations. Bottled water and bag lunches will be provided. Campers with special dietary needs should bring their own bag lunch from home.
