Washington County 7th-8h  grade 4-H’ers are invited to attend Region 19 4-H Trip to Omaha, Nebraska, April 5-6.  Overnight will be spent at the Henry Doorly Zoo with the penguins after enjoying a night hike and behind the scenes tour.   4-H’ers will visit the Strategic Air & Space Museum to learn about past, present and future aircraft.  They will enjoy supper and arcade time at Amazing Pizza Machine.  They will also visit the Durham Museum and end the trip with a high energy visit to the indoor trampoline park Urban Air Omaha which includes trampolines, ropes course, virtual reality and more.  

Iowa, Keokuk, and Johnson County 4-H’ers will also attend, so it’s perfect time to make new 4-H friends and explore this Midwest city. 

Space is limited and registrations will be accepted online first come, first serve.   Registration is open until February 12 (or until trip is filled at)  http://tinyurl.com/4hOmaha2024.    The final registration cost is $270 due to Washington County Extension.  This is a discounted rate thanks to Washington County 4-H 2022 Big Lucky Clover Raffle proceeds.  This fee will cover tickets, transportation, lodging, insurance and meals and arcade playtime.  Additional scholarships are available upon request to amygreen@iastate.edu.

The Region 19 group will travel on a charter bus departing from Iowa City or Williamsburg.  Parents are responsible for transportation to and from camp bus stop.
