4-H camp counselors grow with campers

4-H campers

Each year, hundreds of youth ages 6 to 17 come to the Iowa 4-H Center for day and overnight camps, leadership development and extreme adventure getaways, and camps for the whole family. They get to try new things, take healthy risks and make friends, while being supervised by caring adults who also grow — from making a difference in a child’s life.

“Being on the camp staff is by far the most rewarding experience of my life,” said Rob Larson. “Seeing the kids develop and knowing you had something to do with that provides an extra bit of energy when you need it most.”
