AMES, Iowa — Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is offering several themed 4-H summer camps. These three- to six-day camp experiences offer Iowa youth the opportunity to meet other students from around the state who share their interests, while experiencing a high quality educational program.  

“Youth attending camp gain a new perspective and appreciation of natural resources in Iowa,” said Jacki Luckstead, 4-H camping and shooting sports program specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach. “Partnerships with Iowa State University bring rich curriculum and opportunities for each camper.”

Financial assistance is available through the Iowa 4-H Foundation. Applications can be found on the foundation’s website and are due to county extension offices by April 25, 2017. Youth do not need to be members in the Iowa 4-H program to attend, or to apply for financial assistance. Youth who are from military families qualify for a $75 discount.

Special topics include shooting sports, the science behind drones, a Spanish immersion experience, young women entrepreneurship, and design and technology.

Additional information on grade ranges, costs and times is available on the Iowa 4-H website. Registration is open now, and each camp registration closes two weeks prior to its start date.
