A gift idea for the child with everything


‘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!
