Mark your calendars now for a terrific time…this year’s 4-H East Metro Region Winter Leadership Camp will be held February 8-10, 2019, at Camp TaPaWingo near Mishicot, WI. Older youth from throughout the East Metro Region will come together at 4-H Winter Leadership camp to work on improving their leadership skills through hands-on, interactive leadership sessions. Youth will gain a better understanding of what it means to be a leader and how to apply being a youth leader in their club, county, and school. Along with leadership learning, youth will have opportunities to participate in a variety of recreational activities that may include sledding/tubing, snowshoeing, crazy games, and other outdoor activities. Adult leader volunteers are needed as chaperones to support youth in learning leadership skills and experiencing the great outdoors. Applications forms are attached for youth and adults interested in attending and are due by January 18, 2019.
