WV Conservation Camp is held each year at Camp Caesar.
Camp Caesar can be found nestled on the edge of Monongahela National Forest in the towering mountains of southern Webster County, West Virginia. It offers a touch of the past with its rustic setting and yet has incorporated the necessary modern conveniences to make one's stay pleasant and very hospitable. Camp Caesar has gained the reputation of being a home away from home, for many campers since its beginning in 1922. Camp Caesar's webpage is http://www.campcaesar.info/
