This is very sad news to hear as well at such late timing. As an intern this winter at camp, it was saddening to not be utilized because of these changes. To be told so late in the year about what was going on with the Iowa 4-H Center completely impacted my experience as an intern. I was not able to fulfill my goals as an intern because I could not recruit campers or create programming for the upcoming camp season. Many skills I had hoped to learn I never got to experience because decisions we not made sooner. If I had known about the change in Staff I would have gladly taken that position if offered and could have been trained by staff to do the position properly. So many kids depend on this camp to gain social skills and life lessons. Not to mention great memories and life changing experiences. It disappoints me that decisions about camp have been handled in such a manner when it means so much to so many people.
