If you’re looking for adventure this summer, try the Western 4-H Camp near Washburn, N.D.
Youths can attend a variety of camps to have fun while developing lifelong skills, trying new activities, learning the importance of a healthy lifestyle and discovering what they can accomplish, all in a safe environment.
But the camps aren’t just for 4-H members.
“Some parents think that because the name of the facility is Western 4-H Camp, it is open just to 4-H members, but the camp and its programs are open to all youth ages 6 to 18,” says Brad Cogdill, North Dakota State University Center for 4-H Youth Development director. “The various camps we are offering this summer range from learning basic outdoor skills to supporting youth of military families.”
