Two Great Reasons to Apply for 4-H Trip Awards

My name is Bijou Burgardt and I attended 4-H State Leadership Camp this year which ended up being one of the best camps I’ve ever been to. I got to try a lot of new experiences. My favorite new experience was zip lining. At first I was worried and kinda scared of doing it, but in the end I ended up doing it twice! We also got to rock climb, go on a high ropes course, shoot rifles and do archery. I had so much fun and I am so thankful that I was given the opportunity to attend. I hope to encourage others to attend as well.

Hi, my name is Michael Gardner, I am 13 and going into the 8th grade. My enjoyed my trip to Space Adventure Camp and I had the best time. It started a little rocky and I wanted to go home the first night because this was my first time away at a camp. I was able to get through that first night and had lots of fun after that. If you feel scared and want to leave, don’t because you will miss out on a lot of fun and a really great experience. While I was there, I met so many great people. The campers were awesome to hang out with and the counselors and staff were very kind. We built our own hot air balloon, model rocket and bottle rocket, then got to launch them all. We also went to the planetarium, played flight simulator and went swimming. My favorite part was eating pizza during lunch and near 11 pm which was lights out. I would recommend Space Adventure Camp for anyone interested in science and interested in meeting some great people.
