2016 4-H Professional Development From Your Desk Session #2 "What Makes 4-H Camp-4-H Camp"

Presenter: Mike Jensen, Washington State University Extension

Please join me for an interactive discussion about 4-H Camp, an important delivery tool of the 4-H Youth Development program toolbox. We will explore current information on camp issues such as risk management, national accreditation, impact of legalized marijuana on youth camps, food safety and food sensitivity management, private/public partnerships for program funding and enhancement, and staff training. We will leverage the power of the Zoom platform for small group discussions. You will also learn how WSU Extension has been using zoom for everything from distance learning to connecting with local volunteers. Please come prepared to share your camp success stories and challenges and interact with colleagues. May the Forest Be with You!
