Have you applied to be a Regional 4-H Camp Counselor?

The search is still on for qualified youth to serve as 2019 Regional 4-H Camp Counselors. The Morris Regional 4-H Camp is a unique camping opportunity for youth participants and counselors. Camp will be held at the University of Minnesota Morris campus, June 18-20 with counselors reporting on June 17. The facility is full-service with top quality dorms, a full menu of great food, and a wide variety of recreational activities.

Twenty-five youth in grades 7+ will be selected to serve as Directors, Senior Counselors, and Junior Counselors. The role of a camp counselor is to help campers have experiences that contribute to their growth and maturity by demonstrating values campers can mode. Counselors will also help them experience increased levels of responsibility and develop their self-esteem through experiencing success.

Deadline to apply is Thursday, January 24 by 4:28 p.m. All youth who apply will be notified by email of selection on or before February 1, 2019. More information can be found in the application.
