Nebraska 4-H school year camps provide a wonderful opportunity for youth to get away from it all and spend quality time connecting with nature and the great outdoors while they have days off from school or are on school breaks. 

We're proud to partner with Douglas-Sarpy County Extension 4-H Youth Development to offer science-based school-year day camps. Through these experiences, youth have the opportunity to explore the natural world at Schramm State Recreation Area. These day camps allow youth to connect with friends while enjoying their natural surroundings. All of our programs follow CDC and ACA recommendation for in-person activities, with hand sanitizer, masks and social distancing.
