4-H Day Camps teach variety of skills

Area children learned everything from photography skills to how to babysit during the 2021 Dane G. Hansen Northwest Area 4-H Day Camping Program.

In 2021, 87 teens and 90 adult volunteer 4-H leaders planned and presented 14 different single-day camps in 17 of the 26 counties served by the Hansen Foundation, as well as an additional six multi-county day camps. Youth participation doubled from 2020 to 657.

The Foundation has funded the program since 1967, helping to provide a strong history of educating young people through 4-H day camps in the Northwest region. One key to sustainability is a continued low-cost to families while providing a high-quality educational experience.
