SW Iowa 4-H Jr. 5th & 6th Grade Camp--

Take a ride on the "WILD" side and mark on your calendars to attend Regions 12, 17 & 18  4-H 5th & 6th Grade Junior Camp, June 7-10, 2015 at the Iowa 4-H Camping Center near Madrid, Iowa.


While everyone else is bored with the same old stuff like hanging out in the back yard or watching TV, you can be:

  • Learning how to climb up a 50 foot high wall and rappelling back down.

  • Rowing to the front of the pack in your sleek canoe.

  • Searching for creatures of the night through night hikes.

  • Playing water volleyball.

  • Discovering all the creatures that live in the cool water during the creek walk.

  • Making new friends.

  • And lots more!!!! 

This is just a brief sample of the great activities happening at camp this summer.
