Introducing “Making the Best Better: Youth Directed Experiences”! This opportunity is designed for youth to highlight work they are doing in human development through leading experiences for other young people. These experiences may be through their role as a camp counselor, intern or teens as teacher, workshop teacher, babysitter or day care employee, junior leader, or simply as an older 4-H member coaching those younger in their club or project area.


Youth are highly encouraged to apply on their own behalf but they may also be nominated.


Through this showcase of their experience,

Youth will show evidence of skill development working with other young people.

The 2023 4-H Camping Season will be here before you know it.  

Nebraska 4-H Summer Camp 2023

“Adventure Together”


4-H Camp @ Chadron

June 5-9

Get ready for a week of epic adventure! We’ll explore the modern wilderness of Nebraska on horseback and by foot with a hike through the trees you’ve learned to identify while searching for tracks of native wildlife. We’ll also travel to the Agate Fossil Beds and explore what animals existed in prehistoric Nebraska 23 million years ago! Test your aim with an archery challenge course in the morning and cool off in the afternoon with a trip down the Super Slide!


4-H Camp @ Cozad

4-H afterschool experiences are offered during the time children and youth are out of school and their parents/guardians are in need of safe, healthy, caring, and enriching environments that offer expanded learning opportunities for their children.
