‘Tis the season for gift giving, but what do you give the child that already has plenty of toys, video games, clothes, etc.? This is a challenge that many people face. So, why not consider giving a child a gift certificate to a 4-H camp.
Whether your child’s interest is in tubing down the Niobrara, learning a few “bytes” about robots, or zipping down a zip line on the T.R.U.S.T. Course, Nebraska 4-H Camps provide opportunities for all! With a variety of camp lengths, interest areas, and prices, 4-H Camps can meet your summer camp needs. The Nebraska State 4-H Camp - Halsey, is open to everyone ages 5-19 to attend.
Maybe your child isn’t interested in attending a 4-H camp far from home. If that is the case, check with your local Extension Office about what types of camps/workshops they do locally. Your local office may be able to provide your child with a gift certificate for upcoming 4-H camps/workshops.
4-H is a young person’s first class at the University of Nebraska and your children will learn from the best as the 4-H Youth Development program brings the cutting-edge expertise of the University to them. Be it a five-day road trip for teens across Nebraska or a one-day event for kids ages 5-7 close to home, 4-H has an experience for any interest. A camp experience is one of the very best investments you can make for your child!
