Morrill 4-H

Leadership Opportunities for Grown in Nebraska 4-H (LOG N Camp) will take place May 30-31 at the State 4-H Camp at Halsey.

LOG N 4-H Camp gives youth who are in grades 7 and 8 (during the current school year) an opportunity to gain leadership skills while meeting students from across the Panhandle. The campers get to develop skills while working together to conquer the TRUST course, high wires, zipline, and canoeing at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp. This year the teens will develop an understanding of their personality preferences while completing Real Colors.

Any youth planning on participating in any animal project (large and small animals), are required to take and pass YQCA training. There are two options again this year. You can take a face-to-face training ($3) or take the on-line training ($12). To register, you will go to https://yqca.learngrow.io/Account/Login.

You will use your 4hOnline username and password to access. Then you will enter each child’s information.
