The cost of camp this year is $185.00, with a pre-registration savings of $65.00. This made each scholarship $120.00.

A special thanks for this years scholarships goes to - Furr's Auto Sales, State Farm Insurance, Stump Funeral Home and Special Friends of 4-H.

The purpose of camp is to provide 4-H members personal development experiences to help better understand themselves, and to display more personal confidence when assuming leadership positions.
