Kansas City, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has cancelled a one-day Discover Nature Youth Camp that was planned for June 20 in Lee’s Summit. The plan was for youths ages 11 to 15 to learn outdoor skills at the James A. Reed Memorial Wildlife Area. However, MDC is cancelling some planned programs as a precaution due to the COVID-19 virus.

MDC had been accepting reservations for the free camp. Those who have already signed up will also be contacted directly about the cancellation.

MDC wants people to stay active and enjoy the outdoors despite the virus. But please do so within recommended health advisories and policy being set by local communities.
