Ward chosen as counselor for regional 4-H camp

On March 17, 2018, 24 youth — including Emily Ward of the Glencoe Jr. Pioneers 4-H Club — attended a 4-H camp counselor training at the West Central Research and Outreach Center near Morris. This nine-hour training is required for youth to serve as a 4-H camp counselor.
Minnesota 4-H conducts camps all year long at various locations. Research shows that a well-planned youth camp improves self-esteem, environmental awareness, peer relationships and has other measurable positive outcomes. The training teaches counselors to help youth experience increased levels of responsibility and develop their self-esteem through experiencing success while providing a safe, respectful, and engaging experience for campers.
Twenty eight 4-H Camp Counselors were selected from 12 counties. Ward was selected as a 2018 Counselor from McLeod County.
