Camp registration opens March 15, 2021. Planning around these camps may fluctuate with the changing guidelines regarding social gatherings, and we will do our best to relay these changes to you in a timely manner. Our goal is to have as many safe, in-person events as possible, and provide virtual alternatives when face-to-face is not an option.
Further information will be made available via email, Facebook, and the 4-H State website.
