Region 19 Junior Trip
Region 19 members in grades 4th-6th grade have an opportunity once again to visit the Henry Doorly Zoo for an overnight camping trip this summer! The trip is set for June 5 & 6!
Members will be able to experience the Amazing Pizza Machine on the way to the zoo and then will spend the night in the Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom Building. Members can use the Exploration Station to explore the zoo through an interactive map and videos that preview some of the biggest highlights of the zoo such as the Scott Aquarium, Lied Jungle and more. There are also numerous animal displays and an interactive animal demonstration stage. The center of the Wild Kingdom Pavilion features a 20 foot high netted tree with free flying colorful birds. Below the tree features a water display with turtles, archer fish and much more. The members will get to view a movie in a 300 plus seat auditorium in the exhibit and have a special visitor during their stay. The exhibit is safari themed and deemed the “Trail Head” where visitors begin their wild adventure at Omaha’s Zoo!
The cost per 4-H youth member is $135.00!
This payment includes:
- A RiViT pack from the Amazing Pizza Machine
- Unlimited buffet & beverages
- 90 minutes of unlimited rides, video games & ticket games
- Entrance fee to the zoo
- Breakfast while at the zoo
- T-shirt the member must wear upon reaching the zoo
Members are responsible for lunch both Wednesday and Thursday.
The trip does need chaperones, both male and female. Chaperone price is $85.00. If a parent is interested, please notify your Extension Office immediately for details. We would like to have a chaperone from each county in Region 19. A full volunteer screening through our Risk Management process must be completed before the trip to qualify.
Applications, Code of Ethics & Money is due in your Extension Office by Friday, March 15, 2013!
