Nebraska 4-H camps provide all youth a place to discover, learn and grow!

I’m extremely grateful to be a part of 4-H, an organization that has allowed me to work and grow alongside other youth under the mentorship of wonderful staff. Through various service projects, I’ve learned the value in giving back to the community and want to continue to do so. The leadership activities have also equipped me with important leadership skills I have lacked.
