TAKE PART IN THE THIRD ANNUAL “ACE” EVENT

     Sign up today for the third annual Adventure Camp about the Environment (ACE).  ACE is for middle school students who have completed sixth, seventh and eighth grades in the 2011-2012 school year and who are interested in having fun and learning about Nebraska Natural Resources.  ACE is hosted at the State 4-H Youth Camp near Halsey, June 17th-20th and is organized by Nebraska Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) and the Nebraska Association of Resources Districts (NARD).

     The four-day adventure camp focuses on water resources, soil and land, forestry, range and grassland, and wildlife, while educating campers through hands-on activities on the importance of protecting our natural resources. During ACE, campers have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and dig into nature and form a new understanding of the environment through interactive participation. 

     In addition, campers have the chance to experience nature through activities such as tubing, archery, zip line, water rockets, the water slide and other adventures.  Campers also will learn about possible careers in the area of natural resources from the professionals who work there every day. This is a great opportunity to get our youth involved in learning about natural resources through hands-on activities with experts that are excited about natural resources.

     Fees and registration is $185.00 dollars per camper.  Many NRDs offer scholarships for the four day camp, contact your local NRD to see if assistance is available.  Space is limited and the registration deadline is May 25, 2012.  The Upper Loup NRD offers one full scholarship per sub-district.
