Nebraska Youth Range Camp

The 52nd annual Nebraska Youth Range Camp will be held June 8 – 12, 2015 at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp in Halsey.

The Nebraska Youth Range Camp consists of a four-and-a-half day dynamic curriculum that appeals to students with a wide array of interests including, but not limited to, rangeland management, conservation, ecology, animal science, and wildlife.  With nearly 50 years to perfect and evolve this curriculum, every student, no matter what prior experience they have, will learn substantial information that will help them become more aware of Nebraska’s most prevalent landuse; rangelands.

The students that attend this camp will be actively involved with field activities, lectures, hand-on experience, and recreational leadership and team-building activities that are all led by up to 20 of Nebraska’s most respected and dedicated leaders, teachers, and professionals from various agencies, colleges, and universities.  Each student will be sent home with a binder that is filled with educational materials.

Eligible students need to be between the ages of 14 – 18 that are interested in learning more about natural resource management.
