4-H members in third through eighth grade can hone their life skills during the Junior Leadership Retreat set for Nov. 9-11 at the Texas 4-H Conference Center at Lake Brownwood.
This year’s program will focus on five 4-H project areas — imagination, community service, chemistry, leadership initiatives and fashion.
The retreat starts with registration at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9, followed by general orientation at 9 p.m. and an adult chaperone orientation at 9:30 p.m. Adjournment is set for 10 a.m. Nov. 11 after a flag ceremony followed by breakfast, packing, cleaning the dorms and program wrap-up.
After the Saturday dance, campers will gather at the Texas Star for the closing ceremony and to reflect on the day’s activities. At that time, they will be allowed to place a rock from their hometown into the Texas Star.
Individual registration is $140 for youth and $90 for adult chaperones. Fees include lodging and meals. Click on the “Register Now” link. Late fees apply after Oct. 29.
