Wisconsin 4-H offers unique 4-H camp experiences for youth in winter and summer!
CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR 4-H SUMMER CAMP AT CAMP SUSAN JULY 6-8, 2021!
4-H Camp Susan, located in Deerbrook, Wisconsin, between Rhinelander and Antigo, has 1,000 acres of wilderness with several small lakes and hiking trails. There are unlimited opportunities for environmental education (nature studies including natural wetlands), wildlife spotting (deer, squirrels, birds, and an occasional bear), and recreation (hiking, fishing, canoeing, and swimming).
WHY 4-H CAMP?
The best gift we can give our kids is to empower them with skills that will last for a lifetime, which is why parents have been sending their kids to 4-H summer camps for decades.
4-H was founded on the belief that when kids are empowered to pursue their passions and chart their own courses, their skills grow and take shape, helping them to become true leaders in their lives, careers and communities.
4-H is grounded in a deliberate, research-backed development and delivery model, which means at 4-H camp, kids learn critical life skills like resilience and independence. If we want our kids to be able to bounce back from adversity, stress, challenges and failures, teaching them resilience is key. Having experiences outside their comfort zones help young people become more resilient, more independent and better able to plan and reach their long-term goals.
4-H CAMP HAS SOMETHING TO OFFER FOR EVERYONE!
