Iowa State University Extension and Outreach reminds Northwest Iowa youth to register for the upcoming ‘PLUNGE! into 4-H’ camp to be held April 28-29 at Camp Foster near Spirit Lake.

‘PLUNGE! into 4-H’ is open to all 6th-8th grade 4-H members and/or youth interested in joining 4-H. The two-day event begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 28 and ends at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 29.

At camp, youth are able to take part in wall climbing, horseback riding, archery, team building challenges, nature hikes, campfires, service projects and more.

“During ‘PLUNGE!’ we encourage youth to step outside of their box, try new things and make new friends,” said Ben Pullen, Youth Program Specialist with ISU Extension and Outreach. “Throughout the event, we stress positive youth development and empowerment - which is the heart of the 4-H mission.”

Youth or parents of youth interested in participating in ‘PLUNGE! into 4-H’ camp are encouraged to visit https://form.jotform.com/4Hregion1/4-h-plunge-2017 to register.
