Conservation Begins Here
Serious service. Serious adventure. Serious summer. Each summer, SCA places High School Crews in national parks, forests, and wildlife refuges all over the country to complete service projects crucial to keeping our public lands great. Whether it's building a hiking trail, preserving a vital habitat, or restoring a waterfront, SCA High School Crews do work that will protect our precious natural resources for years to come. Along the way, crew members learn wilderness survival skills and become stronger leaders, all while finding lifelong friends amongst their teammates, and a lifelong passion for conservation. Summer high school programs range in length from two weeks to just over a month, and all are tuition-free and expense-paid.
