Parents, Grandparents Give the Gift of 4-H Camp this Holiday Season

AMES, Iowa – Parents and grandparents can simplify the holiday gift hunt with a “Gift of Camp.” This year, give a present children will remember — the opportunity to spend time at the Iowa 4-H Center.

“Camping at the Iowa 4-H Center is a great opportunity for children to spend time outdoors and experience an adventure away from home, all while making friends and memories to last a lifetime,” says Abbie Parker, program specialist at the Iowa 4-H Center near Madrid.

The Iowa 4-H Center offers camp for kids from age 6 to 17. From day and overnight camps, leadership development and extreme adventure getaways, to camps for the whole family, there’s a summer camp designed for every child’s needs and interests.

Gift certificate order forms are available from the Iowa 4-H Center website.

The Iowa 4-H Center is a joint project of the Iowa 4-H Foundation and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Find out more at or email
