4-H Staff Camp Planning Tool
In an effort to provide more opportunities for youth to experience and enjoy the outdoors, we encourage 4-H staff to consider holding a county, regional, or multi-county camp at the Iowa 4-H Center in Madrid. This is a planning tool that will help you get started planning your camp.
Research shows that youth who play outdoors are better people – our goal as a statewide 4-H program is to help 4-H staff get youth camping and outdoors. At the Iowa 4-H Center we provide caring adults who lead your camp programs and activities. Have a specific theme you want? Want a STEM focus? We have connections. We have ideas and curriculum for about any program idea.Any camp can be tailored to different ages, group size, length of stay, and cost. Please complete this easy 5-step interest form and we will contact you to schedule your perfect camp.
