4-H Junior Camp

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Staff and Youth Counselors from Region 4, including Allamakee, Clayton, Chickasaw, Fayette, Howard and Winneshiek counties kicked off the summer with Region 4 Junior Camp: Passport to Adventure Camp. Regional Jr. camp began on June 5 with counselor orientation where 16 high-school aged 4-H’ers from around the region and two Luther College interns prepared for Jr. Camp 1, June 6-7, and Jr. Camp 2, June 18-19.
While at Pine Bluff 4-H Camp, located outside of Decorah, 96 4-H’ers added to their passport by experiencing Aboriginal dot painting, drum and maraca making, and non-traditional camp foods like fajitas and kabobs.
While at camp 4-H’ers created new friendships, experienced cabin team challenges, and camp traditions such as racoon circle team building and a night hike. The timeless Pine Bluff 4-H camp offers an outlet for youth to experience the outdoors, cooking, and 4-H memories.
