This June and July, the Iowa 4-H Center offers specialty camps designed for true outdoor lovers. Youth ages 14-18 may take a Wilderness Canoe Trek, Backpack Trek or Horsepacking Trek through the rugged trails of places like Minnesota and Michigan.
The projects, the judging, the youth conferences and the presentations in the life of a 4-H’er are valuable experiences that build more than leadership and communication skills. They also can inspire career choices and life-long interests.
Sisters and student-athletes Britta and Hallie Christofferson are familiar with the challenges that college life and college sports can bring. They also know that their experiences growing up in 4-H help them meet those challenges.
