Achievement Night

Read more » |

We had a great turnout for this year's Achievement Night. The photos below don't do justice to the number of people (or crockpots!) that were in attendance this year, but as many people stated, it looks like we will have to move locations next year to accommodate all of our 4-Hers and their families!

This year, club leaders shared what their members have been working on over the past year, we awarded county level prizes, initiated new members, and gave away lots of door prizes. We are constantly looking to improve the program and welcome your suggestions for next year. (We also are a little skimpy on photos and would love to have you share yours with us!)

The application has all of the paperwork that you will need (application, health history, code of conduct) and information about training.

There is a cost to be a camp counselor (more information to come once it is finalized), but you can lower the cost through participation in other 4-H events throughout the year and financial aid.
