The Ohio Forestry Association Foundation hosts Camp Canopy each year to expose students to the career opportunities in the natural resources field, educate them in technical skills for forestry, wildlife, and conservation, and help campers achieve their goals of higher education in a related field. Over 50 industry professionals volunteered their time throughout the week to instruct the future foresters, wildlife specialists, and conservationists of Ohio. Many of our generous instructors have been helping with camp for decades because of their passion and drive to engage the next generation.

The Ohio Forestry Association Foundation is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity that supports Camp Canopy, as well as many other educational programs offered to students throughout Ohio. By designing lesson plans that incorporate adventure and education, the Ohio Forestry Association Foundation and Camp Canopy provide a comprehensive overview of the forestry and wildlife disciplines. A small group of dedicated individuals oversee camp activities and lessons to ensure campers receive the most engaging, educational experience possible. Learn more at

    Congratulations to all who won. Our world and its development are constantly moving forward, and in this movement, it is important to remember personal growth and time for reforestation. With the help of this class, we plant new tree seedlings of various varieties. But for this, I need more time, and the resource trusts my creative tasks so that I have time to restore nature because our future depends on us. We have to start taking care of ourselves for future success.

  2. It’s truly heartwarming to see the Ohio Forestry Association Foundation’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of foresters, wildlife specialists, and conservationists. Camp Canopy’s initiative to provide scholarships to students pursuing majors in forestry, wildlife, or environmental sciences is commendable. Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients! For students looking to further their academic pursuits, especially in essay writing, there’s a site that offers essay homework assistance. It’s essential to have the right resources and support in our educational journey.

  3. I am absolutely thrilled to hear about Camp Canopy’s recent achievement in awarding over $8,000 in scholarships. This news hits close to home for me as I have a personal connection with the Social Security Administration (SSA) office in Georgetown.

    Years ago, my grandmother, who had dedicated her life to public service, relied on the support and assistance provided by the SSA office in Georgetown. The kindness and professionalism of the staff there left an indelible mark on our family. It’s wonderful to see organizations like Camp Canopy making a difference in our community, just like the SSA office did for my family.

    These scholarships are more than just financial aid; they are a symbol of hope and opportunity for young individuals pursuing their dreams. Camp Canopy’s commitment to environmental education aligns perfectly with the values of our community. I wholeheartedly applaud their efforts and hope they continue to inspire and empower our youth to become responsible stewards of our environment. This is a shining example of how local organizations can create a positive and lasting impact, much like the SSA office in Georgetown did for my family.
