North Dakota 4-H Camp ( formerly Western 4- H Camp) Washburn is offering several new camps this summer, as well as familiar camps from the past.

Youth can experience everything from Dutch oven cooking, to archery, horseback riding to hiking. 4-H Camp has something for everyone.

But 4-H camp isn’t just for 4-H members.

Some parents think that because the name of the facility is 4-H camp you have to be a member of 4-H to attend. Not so. All youth are welcome to attend. We have had youth attend from five states, including Washington.

• May 28-June 1: Livestock Camp, 8 and older; Wish I Had a Horse camp, 8 to 10.
