ACE Camp

Nebraska’s NRDs are hosting their annual natural resources camp titled: Adventure Camp about the Environment (ACE). ACE is open to students who have completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade and want to learn more about natural resources and have an adventure at camp. The camp is structured around the six areas of Envirothon. The six areas campers will learn more about are: Aquatics, Forestry, Range and Grassland, Wildlife, Soils and Land, and Policy.

Campers will experience a variety of speakers and activities in each of the six areas, and campers will also get a chance to explore possible careers in natural resources. ACE also includes adventure and activities for campers such as a ropes course, climbing wall, bonfire and games.

ACE will be held June 10th – 13th at the State 4-H Center near Halsey. The cost of the camp is $210.00 per camper and will include meals, lodging and activities.
