Adventure awaits at ND 4-H camps near Washburn

Want to learn archery, hunting skills or how to shoot a rifle?

How about taking ATV training or learning to work with fibers such as yarn and thread or make jerky and identify animal tracks?

The 4-H Camp that begin May 31 near Washburn has a camp for that.

4-H Camp also has camps where youths can learn how to groom and show livestock, care for a horse or express themselves with arts and crafts, as well as go swimming, canoeing and fishing; go on nature hikes and trail rides; play sports; learn about birds and other wildlife; compete in 4-H’s version of the “Survivor” game; dance; stay up late to enjoy night challenge games; and sit around a campfire.

Other camps are specifically for youths from military families or youths from military-connected families, such as brother, sisters, nieces or nephews of someone in the military.

Military-connected youths participate in fun traditional 4-H camping activities along with sessions that focus on the life events youth face as a military family member. They also learn outdoor skills, such as archery and fishing, and make friends.

The camps are open to all youth ages 5 to 18, not just those who are 4-H members.

Registration for this summer’s camps starts March 1.

Here are the dates and age group for the camps:
