Would you like to attend one of the many exciting camps at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp near Halsey this summer? The Cherry County 4-H Council is offering one $200 camp scholarship for an 8 to 11 year old to attend one of the Explorer camps offered. They will also award a $200 camp scholarship to an 11 to 15 year old to attend one of the Discovery camps.

To win one of the scholarships all a Cherry County 4-Her needs to do is submit a short essay explaining:

  • why they would like to go to camp
  • which camp they plan to attend
  • how they would share their camp experience with other 4-Hers

Submit your essay to the Cherry County Extension Office or email it to jdexter3@unl.edu by April 1st. The Cherry County 4-H Scholarship committee will select the winners in time to meet the early bird registration deadline of April 15. Winners will be expected to share their camping experience. Stop by the Extension Office for a brochure or go to http://4h.unl.edu/4hcampandcenters for a complete description of the camps.
