4-H Camp 22 Jun 18

4-H Camp

There were 108 youth who completed grades 3-6 from 12 counties participating in the annual  Regional 4-H Camp at the University of Minnesota Morris June 19-21.   In addition, 28 teenage youth who were trained to be camp counselors provided leadership during camp.  

4-H campers have the same hands-on learning experiences that they have in clubs, events, or fairs, but can spend more time on them.  Activities are designed to develop a greater awareness, understanding, and appreciation of nature.  

Campers had the opportunity to select from one of six educational track choices focusing on various 4-H project areas including:  Agriculture, Horticulture, Entomology, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), and Crafts & Fine Arts.  In addition to time spent in educational tracks, the campers also participated in large and small group games & relays,  swimming at the RFC, speakers, evening programs, campfires, and flag raising and lowering ceremonies each day.  

Sixteen campers and one counselor attended from Stevens County:   Angela Albrecht, Bethany Backman, Scarlet Bergstrom-McKee, Lilly Hanson, Ahna Heins, Kaleb Heins, Nate Howe, Ashley Koehl, Sienna Koehler, Eden Mevissen, Justin Miller, Belle Morris, Jeslyn Olson, Echo Schaefer, Campbell Sleiter, Amy Varga, and Counselor Ryan Miller.
