2020 Karl E. Kelley Memorial Youth Camp

As we have accomplished for over 20 years, Indiana Conservation Officers and the Indiana Hunter Education Association had been planning and preparing for the 2020 Karl E. Kelley Memorial Youth Camp. We have always strived to provide a safe and pleasurable learning experience while introducing youth campers to outdoor life sports through education programs. These programs teach safe and ethical practices and cultivate an appreciation for our natural resources and respect for those who work to protect these resources.

Our staff is saddened to announce that the 2020 Karl E. Kelley Memorial Youth Camp has been CANCELLED.

This decision was incredibly difficult to make and weighed very heavily on the hearts of our staff. Over the last few weeks, we had explored and discussed a multitude of options in an attempt to still hold the Youth Camp while at the same time, remain consistent with the orders, recommendations and guidance from government officials and healthcare professionals.

Out of an abundance of caution due to the Coronavirus pandemic and social distancing guidelines, we feel that we may not have been able to meet the highest standard of safety that your campers deserve and many parents have grown to expect.

We look forward to the next session of the Karl E. Kelley Memorial Youth Camp, which will be held the week of June 20th through June 26th, 2021.

Sincerely Yours
Matt Tholen Camp Director and Staff
